We had the best time reviewing the new book, Totally Awesome Rubber Band Jewelry … AKA we had a fun “crafter-noon”together last weekend. A very creative and artistic friend came over to help us. She happens to be the perfect target audience and at 8 years old, she was able to thumb through the pages and pick which styles to learn. With minimal help from me, she perfected the “fishtail” design and next time wants to learn the “starburst.”
The book was literally hours of fun. And my 3 year old loved being in the mix of it all (she of course had tons of help at her age but loved hanging with the big girls). I wish I had pictures of the boys too, because to my surprise the boys loved them too! … although they loved it more when the girls made them FOR them. ?
I would definitely recommend this book. I know that some people love online video tutorials for crafty things, but there is just something about a good old fashioned craft book that I gravitate to much more. It’s just more simple and tangible.
The easy instructions, creativity that inspires, colorful pictures, and projects with varying difficulty, cause me to happily give this book two thumbs up.
