Belle loves anything creative and liked the idea of making her best friends a friendship bracelet using the GALT Friendship Braids kit.
The kit contains: 60m of cotton thread in assorted colours, satin ribbon, beads, holographic stickers, foam braiding wheel, bodkin, guide with braiding techniques.
The guide is incredibly comprehensive, and shows how to make seven different friendship braid styles, including some hair braids and necklaces. The instructions are quite easy to follow due to a picture guide included as well. Belle decided to start with a simple plaited bracelet design…
Once I had started Belle off, she was able to make the bracelets by herself. I was impressed by the amount of materials provided and the variety of methods taught through the booklet. Belle was very proud with the finished bracelets and is looking forward to taking them into school tomorrow.
Belle only needed a little help with starting and finishing off. We haven’t ventured to using the bodkin (threading wheel) as yet, but I feel confident that Belle will be able to use that with ease.
Priced at £6.99 from Toys ‘R’ Us, I think this kit is excellent value for money, and will be a winner with any little girl who enjoys craft.
