Scholastic Canada Review

For our Spring Bling Event www.scholasticcanada.ca sent me 2 books each with their own kit to make Friendship Bracelets and Glossy Bands.  As you can imagine Sadie LOVED these books and now has a wrist full of bracelets she made and has even gave some to her friends…and of course her momma who wears it EVERYDAY.  The first Book is called “Fancy Friendship Bracelets.”  By Anne Akers Johnson. This book includes 6 charms, 40 yards of cord and more than 2000 beads.  It is filled with very simple instructions and you can make 10 different styles of friendship bracelets.  It is for ages 8 and up but Sadie is 3 and loved helping me and it was a nice little project to do together.  The book retails for $24.99 Can.

The second book I received is called “Glossy Bands” by the editors of Klutz. This book comes with Glossy Bans Gel in 4 different colors.  You squeeze the gel onto the design board over your pattern and follow the step by step instructions to creating the look you want.  The book is filled with bracelet designs.  This book is for ages 8 and up and Sadie didn’t like the waiting for it to dry part so its probably geared for a little older then her.  I enjoyed it and I know any pre teen girl would love it.  The book retails for $19.95.

These would make great b-day gifts for any little girl.
