"Mom" Charm Bracelet Craft Kit
Perfect Gift for Mother's Day!
My Girl Scout Brownie Troop (ages 7-9) made these for Mother's Day gifts. Most of the girls didn't want to follow the instructions, so they made there own patterns with the beads/charms.
I did supplement this craft with stretchy bracelet cord (from a craft store). The cord that is included looks sorta flimsy, so I wanted to make sure these were nice and sturdy.
They turned out beautiful for the Moms!

Cute, My Child Loves Making Them
My elementary school daughter wanted to get this kit and I got it for her.
- Purple & blue beads look good, but the pink ones are foggy (almost looking like totally scratched and abused). I don't think they are supposed to look like that, so I was a bit disappointed
- Just like other bracelet kits, the rings attached to the charms may be loose. You can easily fix it with a plier, no big deal.
- Because it's just my child owning the kit to herself, she has too many to make ....she gave me one and she made another one, but she still has the ramaining and I am not sure if she is interested in working on the same things over and over. If this is for a class or a group of friends, that will be great. BTW my child also has a winter bracelet kit, and she made them all and distributed to her friends. With this MOM bracelet kit, it's not that easy to distribute ...
Overall I am happy with this purchase. But the pink beads.....so I am giving it 4 stars for overall, and then just 3 for quality.

I loved that it was so easy to put together. However, some of the charms weren't as high as I thought they would be. Also, Some of the packs were missing pieces or had beads that weren't drilled all the way through. There were enough extra pieces that I made it work though. The only really negative thing I really have to say was the time it took to receive my order. It took 6 weeks. Which is ridiculous!

I bought these as Mother's Day gifts to use with my 4th grade class and they are cute. However, I found that some of the beads were closed off (couldn't get the stretch cord through), and that the rings on the charms weren't closed sufficiently so they fell off easily. I spent a lot of time crimping the rings together. I also found that the cord broke easily when we were tying the bracelet.

there was one missing and not enough cord. However, people loved the finished product

I Would Choose This Item Again
This craft worked very well as a Mother's Day gift. It required very little hands on help from leaders and allowed kids to work independently at their own pace. Moms really liked the finished product.

Good Mother's Day Gift
I had 3 parents compliment me on their gift they received form their 1st grader. The activity was perfect for their little fingers, and took a half hour to do. I thought the quality was good.

I did this craft with some daycare kids for Mothers Day. It went SO well! We didn't have any issues at all! It was also a great craft for different ages. Young and Old. And the moms LOVED them! :)

Fun for kids
Creative and fun but took longer than expected. Children were 6 & 7 years old. This was a little complicated for that age group, but once they were put together, the bracelets were adorable!

Great for a Group Craft
We had these at are our twin moms meeting and a "Mom" poem attached as a treat for all. The instructions were clear, lay it out first to see how you want it, as with all the beads on it is big. Tie a knot on one end to keep the beads from sliding off when beginning. Not bad for the price, but would like if they had something of nicer quality even if it was a bit more.
