To be honest, these weren't really part of my plans for the '12 Days of Christmas Art and Crafts' that we're doing, but when I was in Ryman's yesterday they had kits for 49p which is cheaper than getting the paper and cutting it out yourself, so I thought we'd give it a go. (To be honest, I can't believe they make kits, but hey ho!) In some respects, I should have gone with my original plan - Riley could not have cared less! With a whole lot of help and encouragement he managed to string 5 or 6 loops together, then tutted at me and wandered off.
Freya on the other hand loved them. Obviously she's not at the stage where she was making them herself, but I gave her 3 looped together to play with and she was fascinated!
She fiddled for ages, wearing them as bracelets and just working out how they looped together. So it wasn't quite the disaster it could have been. I'll have to store the rest of the strips for next year and let Freya go at it again then!
