Beaded Nativity Story Charm Bracelet Craft Kit
Great product !
I purchased these for my 4th grade CCD class. Not only did the girls enjoy making them so did the boys. The string needs to be pulled really tight in order for it not to slip open again.

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.

Perfect project for all
I purchased this kit but altered its use do it would be appropriate for boys. We put each item in an empty dry water bottle as we read the story. When we were done we added rice to make an I spy bottle! Every one loved them!

The bracelet is so cute. I did it with my 3rd and 4th grade CCD class. The kids were so excited when they saw the project. The boys made it for their sisters or mothers. The girls wore them right away. The cords NEVER did stay knotted! I would have wanted the manufacturer to use an elastic cord not the plastic which constantly slips.

I used this in sunday school and day care settings with 3rd thur 5th grade girls. the boys were not interested in making this. The girls enjoyed putt9ing them together but we all had problems with tying the knots.
