Well - we thought we'd give it a little review!
It's craft time kids!
Kettle on for a cuppa and time to calm the kids down from lots of running about so here we go.....
|The instructions provided in the pack|
Each pack contains enough pieces to make 6 bracelets and currently sells for £2.99 (50p each)
What do you get?
Everything you need to make it is provided - the ribbon and pre-cut butterfly shapes with small holes for threading, and a needle.
We had a range of ages making this 3, 4 and 6.
The 6 year old girls were able to follow the instructions themselves, threading the needle (which is brilliant - its just plastic but does the job brilliantly with no pricked fingers).
You line up a small butterfly on top of a larger one and thread your ribbon through the holes. Simples!
The two younger children did have difficulty with this but with a bit of assistance they managed to create their own bracelets too.
|Amelia concentrating on her threading|
It's great for assisting in hand/eye coordination as well as helping with manual dexterity which assists children learning to write and control a pencil.
|Rosie getting a bit of help|
The two younger ones managed to make one too
A nice activity for a quiet 20 minutes around the table.
These would be ideal if you wanted to do some craft activities at a birthday party. I think the children get a real sense of accomplishment when they create something themselves and at the equivalent of 50p (same as a Mars Bar - well, less in fact) I think they are great. I would much rather the kids used their pocket money to get this sort of thing.
Thumbs up to Baker Ross from us on this product!
