.Friendship Bracelets from Crayola Project Kits are on sale at Amazon for £2.33, a healthy 52% off the usual £4.88.
I'm a sucker for anything crafty or anything that gets children creating. So this little project kit seems like a bit of fun for an hour or so, at a very good price.
The kit comes with 80 different beads so you can create a few different bracelets (there are 40 pony beads and 40 star and heart beads), foam flower shapes and over 16 meters of ribbons and braiding threads. It also includes elastic and a comprehensive instruction leaflet should imagination start to dwindle.
Amazon reviews for the Friendship Bracelets are mixed with some feeling that it was too fiddly for children, and others saying that it kept the children busy for hours.
Because of small parts and somewhat fiddly assembly it is not for children under 6 years, although most reviewers used it with their little ones as young as five.
