Beaded Nativity Story Charm Bracelet Craft Kit
Miss MANY pieces : (
I have purchased this bracelet many years as a class Christmas gift, but this year there were MANY pieces missing to make the complete bracelet.! Fortunately I had extra pieces from previous years or I would only have been able to make 8 of the 12 bracelets. This was VERY disappointing. I will probably find something different for a student gift next year.

Missing heart charm, strings came untied
I love the idea of these bracelets, however...These were for a church bazaar, and of the 6 packages I bought (12 bracelets in each package), only one package contained the heart charm! Thankfully we had some pink beads to replace it, but it was disappointing to the kids. Then to top it off, the bracelets were double knotted, as the instructions said to do, but several children came back needing another kit because they came un-knotted and their beads scattered all over. Superglue on the knot is what I'd do next time, but there probably won't be a next time because I was disappointed with the lack of proper materials contained in the bags.

Great for a gift from a child
My daughter wanted to give these to family and friends at school. Beads are cute, plastic balls, metal charms. The cords/string they give is plastic and do not stretch much. I ended up going and buying the elastic string to use instead, much better! I had to put the first bracelet together, I recommend separating the beads then follow the story to assemble. Then my daughter followed my bracelet, and viola!! She is 4 and is super proud of her accomplishment. It brought about conversation of the holy family too!

A Meaningful Reminder of the Season
I got these to make at my church's Advent Workshop, but did two at home first with my four-year-old. We had so much fun making them together and it works so well on her fine motor skills. I definitely recommend this kit. The bracelet itself serves as a meaningful reminder of the true meaning of Christmas.

This was a huge hit at our community Christmas dinner! HOWEVER, several packages had missing pieces OR duplicate pieces, Needed to use a few of the packages just for spare parts. But overall, a success for the kids in the community.

I ordered these bracelets for my 4th grade religious education students. They loved them. I have 12 students, and ordered 12 bracelets. Luckily 2 of my students didn't show up that night, because many of the bracelets were missing beads, one was missing the story card. We used the 2 extra packs for bead replacement. I think this was still a good deal & project. Just make sure to order a few extra. Also, make sure you have glue or nail polish to put on the knot after you tie the bracelet. The knot will not stay done without it.
