Friendship Bracelets

The lovely people at Find Me A Gift often send Izzy little things to try out and review. She gets very excited when they arrive in the post as they are always lovely crafty things. This time we received a lovely Friendship Bracelet Kit.

The kit comes in a cute tin with lots of different coloured threads (96 metres in 12 colours!), some safety pins and a 'how-to' book with easy to follow patterns and instructions for 5 different friendship bracelet designs. 

This is a lovely kit and very reasonably priced at only £5.99. It would make a great present. I think it would suit slightly older girls better though. Izzy is only 7 and she struggled to follow the instructions as she had never made these bracelets before so it would probably be better for girls aged 9 plus. We decided to make some bracelets together and ended up trying out some very simple plait designs which Izzy loved and was then able to do by herself. Older girls would easily be able to follow the instructions for the fancier designs which looked very pretty. I tried but was all fingers and thumbs!

I spotted a few other nice crafty things on the website too....

This would be great for Sam. His favourite thing ever is junk modelling and this kit gives you connectors which attach boxes together. Make and Do Robot Kit

Izzy would love this. She is just starting to learn to knit with her grandma
