When deciding on Christmas gifts (and birthday gifts) for my kids and their friends, I always try to get something that they can do, or engage with. Something that will work the brain a little, or develop their creativity. That’s why I love craft kits for tweens like this awesome Text Cool product.
My daughter was super excited with this showed up in the mail. She got to work creating friendship bracelets for all of her pals right away. She came up with the concept herself – ever the encourager, she made bracelets with positive characteristics that described her friends. To make it her own, she added a hashtag (#) before each descriptor.
The process was super simple. The kit comes with everything you need – two discs of 60 letters and symbols, 35 bracelet strips and connectors, and the text cool punch system.
To create the text, pull the strip under the disc, push down the pedal, and stamp the bracelet strip.
It comes with these cute and colorful connectors too, that close the bracelet up once you have finished stamping it.
Here are some of her finished products – #joyful, #smartypants, and #funny. Aren’t they cute?
She loved giving them to her friends and they loved the positive note and affirmations! What a great way to remind a girl that she is wonderful!
If you want to find a great kit for your daughter or someone special, you can find the Text Cool at Target, Walmart, Amazon and Toys R’ Us. It’s an awesome way for them to express themselves and share their inner fashionista – or in this case, their awesome personalities!
