Friends 4 Ever Bracelet Making Kit

An age-old tradition gets a modern makeover with the Friends 4 Ever Bracelet Making Kit. Pairs of playmates will love solidifying their friendship status with wristlets; 22 colors of floss, beads, four looms and eight patterns give kids a variety of tools to create a one-of-a-kind bracelet for their BFF. The Friendship Wheel, a specialty little loom, makes weaving bracelets a snap. The kit takes some trial and error, but once kids have the hang of it, there’s no stopping the manual dexterity and creative benefits from jewelry creation—making this a perfect gift for any hands-on crafter.
