OptiArt Gemstome Jewelry Kit Review and GIVEAWAY!! **ENDED**




Creativity for Kids is the ultimate website for finding products that will get your kids away from electronics and back to the basics. They sell tons of kits for kids of all ages designed to educate and spark creativity in your children. I have had the opportunity to review numerous products in the past and have never been disappointed with their selection or quality.

If there is one thing my daughter likes more than jewelry, it is making her own jewelry. The OptiArt Gemstone Jewelry Kit is that allows your young jewelry artist to make a wide array of wearable items combining interesting paper patterns with faceted gemstones. The kit allows your little one to make an amazing amount of jewelry and even includes a mini-purse!

Included in the kit:
Self-adhesive acrylic gemstones in a variety of sizes and shapes
2 sheet of OptiArt designs which are meant to be colored and placed behind the gems
Mini markers in a variety of vibrant colors
Metal bracelet (jewelry is nickel free)
Metal rings
Metal pin backs
Metal hair clips
Faceted bead assortment with TONS of colorful beads
Iridescent petite purse
Fabric flower assortment
Plastic needle
Needle threader
Ribbon in a variety of pastel colors
Double sided adhesive circles
Self-adhesive velvet backing
Assorted gel cord
Scissors
Instructions

I could not believe the sheer amount of things included in this kit! With the wide variety , the jewelry options seemed endless. It is designed for ages 7 and up. My daughter is 5 and was easily able to make all the jewelry with the exception of beading the gel cord which required a bit more advanced fine motor skills. She loved finding the perfect pattern from the OptiArt design sheet and matching it with the jewelry pieces and gems. The jewelry is actually quite attractive when completed. She allowed me to make some jewelry as well and we kept busy with the kit for almost two straight hours, made tons of jewelry, and still have tons of items left to make a lot more jewelry. I would highly recommend this kit and think the value ($17.99) is unbelievable!


Bella even let me make one!

OK. I would either choose the Shrink Dinks Fairy Garden for my own nostalgic puporses or the Flip Flop Fashions. My granddaughter loses Flip Flops frequently to the dog in the house that thinks they are tasty.
