A Summer State of Mind: Ocean Charms Jewelry-Making Activity Kit

April 1, 2014

Ocean CharmsWe don’t know about you, but we’re having a hard time trying to get out of this winter rut. Sure, the calendar says spring, but it feels more like January. To help turn our thoughts to warmer weather, we decided to head to the beach…well, maybe not yet, but at least the sand and sea can inspire us to be creative. We had a chance to check out the Beach and Nature Company’s Ocean Charms Jewelry Making Kit , and loved what could be made in one afternoon, in any season. This all-included kit contains everything needed to make three cord necklaces that make for polished presents. The pre-measured plaster simplifies the design process, so you know exactly how much to use to make your charms. Moms will also appreciate the included wax paper to ensure a mess-free working surface. The added elements of sand, sea shells and sea glass offer plenty of variety when designing your necklaces, and the straightforward directions make the jewelry-making a breeze. This kit is recommended for ages 8 and up with adult supervision, but as long as you have an extra pair of capable hands, younger crafters can join in, too. Just be sure to call dibs on one of those necklaces for yourself!

In a Nutshell: With an eye toward warmer days, this well-designed craft kit treats crafty kids to a day at the beach, no matter the weather.
