We all know it's hard to fill up the days of the school holidays with no "I'm bored" comments - even if you have planned a days worth of activities! But the school holidays can be the perfect time to get creative and try some new activities. Here are our ten reasons why we think some basic jewellery making is the perfect activity for this school holiday.
Young minds are full of great ideas, so just see what lovely things they can create.
Great for learning and using their brains in different ways.
Through their choice of gemstones and supplies they express their tastes and opinions.
This is great for boosting self esteem and confidence in their abilities.
Making individual and unique pieces of jewellery rather than buying mass produced jewellery will help them to appreciate the abundance of small businesses out there selling their own amazing creations.
Which may mean a little peace and quiet for you!
If it's a lovely sunny day, why not take a rug and some refreshments into the garden and get fresh air while creating! If it's miserable and raining congregate around the dining room and spread out whilst creating.
A thoughtful and beautifully unique way to give their friends and family something they will be sure to treasure forever.
So is great for their wellbeing!
Be inspired by our lovely 'Ocean gemstone' bracelet, which simply involves threading on beads and knotting to make a lovely bracelet.
Our boho tan turquoise bracelet is simple to make, just make sure an adult helps to glue the ends securely.
