My Friendship Bracelet Maker Traveler Review and Giveaway

Bullying has become such a big issue lately and I'm excited to tell you about My Friendship Bracelet Maker Traveler. Providing children with constructive hobbies helps them focus on creating rather than destroying. This type of product is extra special because children are making the bracelets for others. What a wonderful virtue to instill in children!
This travel size edition of the Friendship Bracelet Maker is the perfect go-anyplace crafter. The embroidery threads are stored in a slide-out drawer on the side. There are even five included just to get you started. It comes with clear instructions and even photos.
I invited my son to make a friendship bracelet for me. After reading the directions, he pulled out two black threads, two reds, and two whites. He explained to me that the more threads you use, the wider the bracelet appears.
He showed me how to thread them across the bracelet maker, going under a thread, pulling it tight, then moving the threads over one at a time. It was neat to watch how the bracelet began to take shape. He worked on it for about a half an hour, then took a snack break before heading back to it.
He stayed very concentrated on what he was doing and it reminded me of when I used to make looped potholders as a child. When the bracelet reached the end of the Friendship Bracelet Maker, he pulled off the strings and tied a knot at each end. Then he fixed a sliding knot on the back so it could be easily adjusted to slide on and off a wrist.
Here is the finished bracelet. I got to wear it for the picture, but he's planning on giving it to one of his friends. He has always liked making things, whether it's wood projects, block building, or science messes, so I figured he'd enjoy helping me with a bracelet. I have to admit it was really nice to see him doing something that isn't electronic.
My Friendship Bracelet Maker Traveler is an excellent gift for a child, tween or teen, and both girls and boys. The company also offers different versions of My Friendship Bracelet Maker as well as My Ribbon Barrette Maker. Help your kids to Choose Friendship and together watch the Inside-Out Anti-Bullying Video starring Marisa Nahas. Then enter to win My Bracelet Maker Traveler below!
