1. Rainbow Loom
All three of my kids have enjoyed the Rainbow Loom over the past few months and if your tween girl doesn’t have one, this would be a great gift. My daughter spends hours designing and weaving bracelets. She watches Youtube videos and does intricate patterns. The Rainbow Loom is one of the hottest trends right now and it can be hard-to-find. After your kids give it a whirl, you will need refill packs, which come in many colors and there are even tie-dyed, neon and glitter bands. I also recommend a Romanoff Large Case for organizing your loom and bands. My daughter has this one and she loves it.
2. Toolbox Jewelry (Klutz) and Pom-Pom Puppies: Make Your Own Adorable Dogs (Klutz) Book and Craft Kits
I put this brand-new Klutz Toolbox Jewelry book and craft kit on my list for my tween daughter. There are 10 different projects and I think she will love designing this type of eclectic jewelry out of nuts, washers, gears and more. The results look so neat and everything she will need is included with the book. Your crafty tweens will also enjoy this Pom-Pom Puppies: Make Your Own Adorable Dogs (Klutz) book and craft kit. While it’s newly-published, it already has some excellent reviews. I also like the pricepoint considering all instructions and materials are included.
Your young stargazers will love looking up in into space with this pretty MoonScope from Nancy B’s Science Club. This Moonscope includes x18 to x90 magnification, a moon filter and a built-in tripod with red LED light. This is one of Nancy B’s many excellent science tools for kids and it comes with a 22-page activity journal.

What tween girl hasn’t had friendship troubles and this newly-revised book by American Girl helps to navigate through friendship issues. This book discusses backstabbing, triangles and other tough friendship problems. While this may seem like a very practical gift, American Girl seems to somehow make light of difficult situations.
My daughter along with several of her friends still love constructing Legos and Lego Friends has been popular with girls of all ages. I love the newer set, LEGO Friends Heartlake High 41005. It includes lockers, a deli, both an art and science classroom, a bench to eat outside, a basketball hoop and so much more. Your tween girls will love all of the fun pieces included in this set and it will be a challenging gift for tween girl. There are also many other Lego Friends sets available.
I love that there is a super simple book for tweens to learn a little bit about sewing. This book includes lots of easy, hand-sewing projects for your girls to try, even if your family is not a sewing family. This book boasts that very little parent supervision is needed, which is great because most tweens are so independent. Sewing School: 21 Sewing Projects Kids Will Love to Make includes patterns and instructions for 21 projects such as a doll blanket, pillow, drawstring bag and more. Once hand-sewing is mastered, your girls can try Sewing School 2: Lessons in Machine Sewing; 20 Projects Kids Will Love to Make, which is a beginning machine sewing book. This highly-reviewed book includes 20 different machine sewing projects.
Nerf has come up with the brand-new Rebelle line for girls and your sporty girls will love them. This Nerf Rebelle Guardian Crossbow Blaster fires darts up to 75 feet and it includes rapid blasting and bow flex arms. These are especially fun if your tween has brothers with other types of Nerf guns. It includes darts in pinks and purples and your tween will definitely be able to tell from her brother’s darts. You can also purchase Nerf Rebelle Dart Refill Packs , plus there are so many other Rebelle bows, shooters and more.

10. Faber Castel Gel Sticks – 12 ct. and Faber Castel Eco Pencils 12 Metallic Colored Pencils Arts & Crafts
These Faber Castel art supplies aren’t your average Crayola products. They are cool, innovative supplies for your budding tween artist. I love these Eco Pencils 12 Metallic Colored Pencils . These are high quality and will add pretty metallic colors to all of their projects. If you have never seen Gel Sticks before, these ones are geared towards young artists. They are semi-solid paint sticks that roll up and down. You can rub them straight onto our project or you can dab a bit of water on a brush and use the gel stick that way.
Design by Me: Treats is an older girl book for coloring projects. American Girl has a few of these, but the one above is newly-released this year. My daughter has one of the Design by Me books at home and she has enjoyed every project. There are fun fold-out posters, metallic and flocked pages and more. We also love these International Arrivals Color Appeel Crayon Sticks . They are similar to crayons, but you peel away the paper to sharpen them. They are long like a pencil or pen and have really lasted in our house!
