#AWESOME #DIY #GIFTS
Texting is part of our kids everyday lives nowadays. It’s fun for
me kids to use emoticons to express what they are thinking or feeling. Now you can encourage them to take their love of texting away from the phone with TEXT COOL™ Bracelet Studio! Maybe your daughter and her friends have a TEXT saying they use often or an inside joke. Now they can wear these ‘moments with friends’ on their wrists. These DIY bracelets can be personalized to say whatever you’d like.
We are addicted to emojis and were beyond excited to see that it included all the TEXT emoticons we regularly use on the phone. The kids played with it quite a bit already!
Here’s how it works:
Slide the bracelet in place. Choose the letter or emoticon you plan to use by making sure it’s peeking through the hole. Press the purple button down firmly. It embosses (stamps) and then moves forward a spot – ready for a new letter/emoticon. That’s it!
It comes with the bracelet studio, letter wheel, emoticon wheel, a stack of bracelets in all different colors and patterns, and plastic clasps for holding the bracelets closed. The patterns are so shiny and fun. There’s tie dyed, pink camouflage, cheetah patterns + more.
Fun Bracelet Ideas:
Big Brother (8) made a bracelet for 2 girls at school. Each one featured their name on it with emoticons on both sides. He loved that he was able to make something all by himself to give to his friends. Little Sister also made a couple for herself and her friend. She’s a preschooler so needed help with spelling and placing the bracelet in, but the rest she was able to do herself! She absolutely LOVES it.
These fun accessories could say names, words, phrases such as friends forever or bestie, an inside joke, popular hashtag they use often and so on.
Knitting Made Easy!
Knitting with needles can be hard for a beginner. The Knit’s Cool™ Knitting Studio is a tool that makes learning to knit super easy.
Make scarves, phone holders, headbands, and more! You can even watch the How-To videos online including hot to make a tote purse and wrap bracelets. We plan to watch the scarf video this weekend and attempt our 1st knitting project. When the girl I babysit for uses it for the 1st time, I will update with her finished creations and share her experience with you. Whether she likes it, found it easy, and any other thoughts she has and might be helpful for you.
DIY Accessories as Gifts!
Perfect for moms who aren’t the crafty type to get for their kids who like to make things. The girl I babysit for (10) is super crafty, unlike her mom. I am always searching for artsy things to do with her since she is older than my kids. These craft kits are a great activity to have for her while she’s over at our house.
The Cool Brands kits are a great way for kids to make handmade gifts for their friends whether it’s for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Friendship Day or a birthday. The bracelets would even look good on top of a birthday gift in lieu of a bow!
