Beaded "Happy Mother's Day!" Charm Bookmark Craft Kit
Nice product for a good price
We used this craft for a Children's Hospital benefit for the children's craft table. The children really enjoyed making the book mark. The only thing we changed was we replaced the cord with a different type of cord to string the beads. The cord provided is too hard to tie and work with. It was an easy, cheap fix and the kids really liked it. I would buy this product again.

The beading takes a long time for little kids, as the beads are very small. The adults had do end up doing the beading portion. This is a project for teens. Some of the print on the bookmarks were smeared, so the Mother's Day writing did not look nice and neat on all the bookmarks. Some of the beads where defected, and no extra's provided.

cute, but requires help
I bought this for a cute Mother's Day activity for my students. The students seemed to enjoy them, but I did have to help each student with the string. Some kits came with really stiff plastic string, but others came with a more flexible fishing line type of string. The latter was definitely easier so I ended up throwing away some of the other kits. I also used regular fishing line for some.

Good Idea but not practical
There were materials that were missing for some of the bookmarks. The design was pleasant but putting the bead through the string and then on to the bookmark was difficult for kids to do by themselves.

Cute product, but not easy to knot!
We bought these for a Mother's Day craft for our Sunday School Children, ages 4-9 to do for Mother's Day 2009. The children were all able to string the beads just fine, but we all had a terrible time (adults included!) trying to knot the strechy string. It took us several tries and many knots!!! While trying, we would sometimes loose beads on the floor and have to restring. Overall, it is very cute, but I would have more adult help in completing it.
