Launching a New Line of Craft Kits for Kids Isn't All Play

Launching a New Line of Craft Kits for Kids Isn't All Play

Inspiring moms and getting kids to "unplug" to have some fun


Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores had nearly everything for a successful launch of their new kid's craft kits; colorful packaging, cohesive branding and a big-name celebrity endorsement. They needed to convince moms that these new kits were simple, fun and ultimately entertaining for their kids.


We came up with a series of inspirational "how-to" videos which were short and fun, yet explanatory. We wanted to show moms just how fun these little kits could be! The videos were developed using a combination of stop motion, cross-dissolves, and helpful on-screen text to keep them as simple as possible but still engaging. And at the end of each video, we brough the craft to life with a child interacting with the newly created craft.


We built a custom set in our Content Studio and brought in the lead crafter who designed the components of each kit. Utilizing a two-camera setup for the how-to portions of the videos and green-screen on our cyc wall for the kids' interactions with the crafts, we were able to shoot twelve (12) quick craft tutorials in just two days. In the end, we were able to achieve the simplicity, fun and playfulness that we knew would entice parents to buy the kits and the children to enjoy them.
