I ended up doing a bracelet with my one nephew first. The kit comes with four bracelet shapes. The bracelets are made of a cardboard type of material, so I'm not really sure how it will hold up with time and getting the bracelet wet. The directions says that you can make a cut in the bracelet and re-glue it together to get it to fit how you would like. The kit comes with different threads that you can use to go around the bracelet. That requires looping it around and around the bracelet. That's where my nephew got bored with the project. The kit comes with a couple different things, like buttons to accessorize a bracelet to make it your own.
Overall, the set is just okay. I'm a bit disappointed in things like the cardboard bracelets and the lack of variety in colors and accessories.
Each tote is kid-sized measuring a square foot and made from a light weight canvas (so put a cut piece of cardboard or newspaper inside so that the paint will not bleed through to the other side. In fact you can put both stenciled designs on each side if you are savvy about it. Paint, stencils, and pictoral instructions that are so easy a non-reader will understand are included.
ETA: As I expected, my 6 year old granddaughter needed quite a bit of assistance to make this. I highly question the recommended 3 = 5 years. My 4 year old granddaughter did have fun with the extra paper and the glue stick!
The totes appear to be sturdy and the intended use will be to carry books to and from the library. I like the fact that each kid has their own bag that they made themselves. I also think the price point is quite reasonable. Everyone is happy :)
Comes with a Aquarium box,that is like a regular cardboard box, with a design on the edge that makes this look
Like a shadow box frame. Foam sheets , sticker sheets, glue stick, 5 colorful beads, tissue paper, color string, paper sheets, and
A little insrtuction card with good pictures .
The 3 1/2 yo loves this set, but its only for making one box frame picture, or get another box to make more pictures .
A childern who is 3 needs help making this picture!
You get high quality craft items and enough to make four bracelets.
The instructions are super easy to follow, yet allow your child to use their creativity - each bracelet will look different, based on their own creativity.
The bracelets have stayed together even after a lot of wear.
Definitely a nice indoor activity, good for more than one child, and your child ends up with something they'll wear with pride later!
