Are you looking for a great kids gift for a birthday or a holiday? Want an activity that will keep your youngsters engaged and occupied? Then this sparkly jewellery set from Interplay Educational Toys could be the one to pop onto your shopping list!
Peakles loves making and wearing jewellery, especially after we received an Interplay Tag Jewellery craft set to review last year. Imagine her delight when she was chosen to review their Sparkly Jewellery set this year too! She was so excited and could not wait to start making some of the pieces that are shown on the front of the box!
What’s Inside the Box?
We opened the box to find:
- instruction booklet
- stretchy cord
- sticky dots
- sparkly foam cutout shapes
- sparkly jewels
We carefully unpacked the box and read the instruction leaflet before deciding which piece we would make first.
This craft box was aimed at children aged 4 to 7 years. Peakles was able to make these with very little help from me. She was able to follow the simple instruction booklet and was soon designing her own necklaces and bracelets.
She started by making the hair clips for her and her friend and then went on making some sparkly rings with the foam cutouts. Next she followed the instructions and was soon threading beads onto a piece of stretchy cord to make necklaces and some bracelets.
She then went on to make some pendants for some necklaces using the foam shapes and stick on jewels. Peakles also thought carefully about the bead patterns she was using as well as taking care with her threading. These are both great skills for helping develop her fine motor skills and her mathematics too!
Our Thoughts on Tag Jewellery Kit
Peakles really enjoyed making the jewellery. She had creative control and was able to work on her own for most of the morning with this kit. She also This is a big thumb’s up from Peakles!
I thought the Sparkly Jewellery Kit was great and kept her occupied for a whole morning. What I liked was the size of the kit which was quite compact. This meant it was ideal for us to take on holiday this half term and we actually did our review in the caravan whilst the weather was cold and wet outside!
I would buy this for a birthday or a general present and it is already on my shopping list for future birthday parties too!
