What It Is
The Original Spirograph String Art kit from Kahootz uses cardboard shapes featuring rigged edges and colorful string to create string art designs similar to classic Spirograph drawings. To get started, select a string color and shape. Then place the string in any notch on the circle and tape it to the back to hold the string in place. To create a classic spirograph count five notches from your starting point and wrap the string through that notch. Then bring the string around the back and then through the notch next to your starting notch. Repeat this process until you've gone all the way around the circle. Cut the string and tape the end tightly to the back.
You can then stick the magnets to the shape or place it within the included frame to hang on your fridge or wall.
The kit comes with diecut cardboard shapes, yards of colorful string and satin ribbon, a sticker sheet, a sheet of adhesive squares, gems, magnets, and two sets of frames and frame backs.
Why It’s Fun
The Spirograph String Art kit puts a unique spin on a classic toy. The basic technique is easy to pick up and the directions make it easy to follow. And once you've mastered the basic technique, it's just as easy to quickly move on to creating more advanced designs just as easily. The basics of creating the designs don't really change only the shapes you are working with and varying the number of notches from the starting point will create different shapes.
Who It’s For
The Original Spirograph String Art kit is for ages 6 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
The directions suggest using either one of the included adhesive squares or tape to hold the string and frames in place. The adhesive isn't very strong so we suggest using tape.
Use different colored strings to create layered spirograph designs.
The fewer notches you thread, the more open your Spirograph designs will be.
The company is positioning the word "Spirograph" to mean geometric designs. There is no drawing involved in this set.
