My daughter loves being creative and as a parent, I love craft kits where you have everything you need to make something wonderful along with clear instructions on how to achieve the end result. That is exactly what you get with the Craftbox kids kits.
This week we have been putting the Fairy Charm Jewellery to the test and I knew my daughter would love it as we have had a couple of Craftbox kits before and she had great fun with them.
Fairy Charm Jewellery has everything you need to create ten different fabulous fairy accessories and you can choose to create necklaces or bracelets. The kit includes a good selection of beads of different styles and colours along with 12 metal fairy charms to give each creation a perfect finish.
This is what you will find in the kit:
160 x Opaque Beads (4 colours)
80 x Bicone Beads (2 colours)
40 x Round Facetted Beads (2 colours)
20 x Pearl Effect Beads (2 colours)
10 x Pink Heart Beads
10 x Purple Star Beads
10 x Purple Butterfly Beads
12 x Metal Fairy Charms
12 x Charm Split Rings
1 x 4m Stretch Jewellery Cord
5 x Clasps
10 x Small Beads
1 x Instruction Booklet
The kit is suitable for children aged 4+. As my daughter is 7, she was able to create the jewellery independently and just needed help putting on the clasps at the end. Younger children would probably need a lot more support with their jewellery. She loved the different coloured and textured beads but especially loved the fairy charms and quickly set to work creating her first masterpiece.
You take the stretch jewellery cord and cut it to the required length and you choose you fairy charm first of all. This is attached to the cord using a charm split ring and then you can add any combination of beads to your creation. It is very straightforward to use. A made a full-length necklace and was thrilled with the end result.
The Fairy Charm Jewellery kit is well worth the money as it is priced at around £10. The kit will give children hours of fun making and creating their jewellery pieces and of course they can wear the end products too as they look really pretty. The kit would also make an ideal gift or you could even encourage your child to make a necklace or a bracelet as a gift for one of their friends. Kits like this are perfect for creating some quiet downtime where children can learn to follow instructions whilst improving their fine motor skills. A definite winner in this house, we both loved CraftBox Fairy Charm Jewellery and it is a kit that I would buy both for my daughter and as a present too.
