Fancy Friendship Bracelets from Klutz | Review

Share

I recently had the opportunity to review a newly released book from Klutz featuring the Fancy Friendship Bracelets, written by Anne Akers Johnson.

Jewelry Making

When I was a youngster, I didn’t attend fancy day camps in the summer when school was out.  The Park and Recreation Department in my town would hold arts and crafts activities at each of the local parks all day long.  Along with my friends, I’d show up in the morning; go home for lunch and; walk back for the afternoon activities.

One of my favorite activities was arts and crafts.  For a small fee, perhaps it was 5 or 10 cents, we’d get to make a project.  One of my favorite projects were the bracelets made out of colored cord.

Klutz started with super-simple instructions for a flock of all-new bracelet designs which includes five different colors of cord.

Features Include:

  • 6 stylish charms
  • 40 yards of cord
  • More than 200 beads

Recommended for ages 8+, the book includes instructions to make 10 different fancy friendship bracelets.

Klutz was started in 1977 by three unconventional friends from Stanford University. In 2002, Scholastic Inc., the largest children’s book publisher and distributor in the world, acquired Klutz.

…how-to books from Klutz come packaged with the tools of their trade (from juggling cubes to face paints to yo-yos), and are designed for doing, not just reading.

Klutz also offers Bead Loom Bracelets, Spool Knit Jewelry, Shrink Art Jewelry as well games, puzzles, art, drawing and extra supplies.

For a MSRP of $19.95, this is a cute, entertaining and educational book to put on your Christmas holiday shopping list for any pre-teen or tween!

    I like that you can order extra supplies! It’s a real bummer for kids to be doing a craft or project they like and not have any more supplies to make extra things.

    The Klutz Knitting is something I’d like to get. I never did learn how to knit.
