GIVE-A-WAY: Glossy Bands by Klutz Books {kids crafts & fun}

This is such a fun give-a-way! There will be 3 winners of the book pictured above! We aren't just about boys here- we love girls too! ☻
 We had so much fun making these Glossy Bands by Klutz Books.
If you are not familiar with Klutz Books, let me just tell you - they have great kid's craft books on everything and for just about every age! You must check them out!
This new book, Glossy Bands, is going to be released on May 17th. It is recommended for ages 8 and up, but I did this just fine with my little ones and they really had fun using the paints to make these little bracelets.

Here is how it works:
( you can watch a video here)

First pick your pattern from the book- or you can make your own.
Use the non-toxic acrylic gels to make the pattern dots.
The book comes with little re-usable plastic strips that you do this on.


Next swirl the dots to make a design using the swirling sticks or a toothpick.
Last let it dry and when it is all the way dry, wrap around your wrist and you have a wearable piece of art!
These really are cool - and I can see young girls having tons of fun with them. My boys have fun with anything that involves paint!


How cool is that?
The book has beautiful pictures and easy to follow instructions.
Klutz makes some of the best kids craft books -all with materials needed. I think these books make great gifts too!

Want to win this for your kids?

Leave a comment!
( not required- but take a look at the other Klutz books too-they just have all kinds of great stuff for kids!)
You have until May 17th, at midnight, p.s.t.

Good luck!
Thanks for reading!
