Give-away : Fashion Headbands

The folks at Creativity for Kids asked me if I'd like to do a review and give-away for their Fashion Headbands craft kit. I said that I thought Maddie would really like that, so sure!

Madd doesn't wear headbands for everyday accessories, but she adores them for dress-up play.
And of course decorating, gluing and sparklifying is right up her alley!

Publisher says:

"Create 10 awesome accessories with this ultimate headband set. The Fashion Headbands craft kit includes a rainbow array of satin headbands, rhinestone, flowers, feathers a butterfly, yards of ribbon and more! This is a great craft for play days and small group activities."

The kit comes with
  • 10 Colorful Satin Headbands
  • Sparkling Butterfly
  • Elastic Felt Pieces
  • 2 Fabric Flowers
  • Assorted Ribbon
  • Craft Glue
  • Craft Thread
  • Colorful Feathers
  • Assorted Colorful Rhinestones
  • Instructions and Ideas

    Right away Maddie tore the butterfly when trying to take it out of the box, and the wings came off. But there is glue included, so I just glued the wings back on.
    The headbands seem more sturdy than the little plastic ones than a little friend of ours always leaves behind, so that was welcome.
    The glue is a craft glue, bit it's not tacky immediately, so it takes a while for the ribbons to stick, and then dry. I considered getting out my tacky glue, but Maddie seemed to managed alright.

    She's been loving playing with the kit... I plan to play, too, I have a circlet planned... something like a crown. :) We'll keep you updated with that!
