February 2014 Darby Girl Review

What's In the Box
What’s In the Box

In the box there was a multi-jewelry tool (pliers, cutter), 3 sheets of acetate or whatever the generic name for Shrinky Dink paper is, some clip art (letters and numbers on the back), jewelry findings (chain, lobster clasps, and jump rings), and a set of sharpies. There were enough supplies to make 2 bracelets!

Coloring
Coloring

My daughter started coloring immediately using the clip art, and I went to the computer to find some more. The instructions encouraged us to free-hand but that wasn’t happening (I did make a charm by writing her name in script, it turned out fabulously!).

Baking

The joy on this kid’s face as the charms began to shrink was so sweet! It was like magic!

Finished Charms

The charms turned out great. As you can tell, for the most part I don’t interfere with my daughter’s creative process. She punched her own holes and some of them didn’t turn out great – which is why we made a bunch of them!

Practicing
Practicing

I assembled the bracelet while she got in practice opening a jump ring and closing it. She is really learning way too quickly and won’t need my intervention soon!

Tada! Ok, even though I don’t interfere, we chose to use some of the charms that I made for her completed bracelet – she doesn’t have the dexterity yet for tracing and wanted Sheriff Callie! The other character is Deputy Peck, and she picked the cupcake, a sheriff’s badge we made, her Mickey Mouse, and the heart, as well as her name (one of her favorites!).

This was such a great idea and I would have never thought of it! My daughter is already planning her next bracelet and we’ll do the second one the next time we have a day without crafts planned!

    Hi Brandy!

    Your Darby links are not active – strange, right? LOVE your site, thank you for all the great info!

      Looks like they are temporarily inactive. Basically the affiliate networks cut them off when they don’t make a payment in time, they come right back. Here’s my referral link if you really want to go buy something: http://fbuy.me/zxtQ 😉

      My daughter sings the song at the top of her lungs while bouncing on the trampoline. It’s so cute and hilarious.
