Book Review:    Super Slappies: Make Your Own Animal Bracelets

One of many outstanding products from Klutz, Super Slappies : Make Your Own Animal Bracelets gives kids the opportunity to create cool animal bracelets. 

Slappies are all the rage-- they are bracelets that you actually slap onto your wrist. This set allows kids to make animal slappies--fuzzy and fancy bracelets that girls will be proud of, especially when they have made them all by themselves. Our favorite slappy was also the easiest to make--a delightfully fuzzy purple caterpillar with googly eyes you can wear on your wrist! You can buy ready-made Slappies too, but making them is definitely more fun and satisfying. 

This product is designed for kids 8 and up, but when parents help, girls ages 6-8 can have a great time with the set. No sewing is necessary. Instead, kids decorate the four plain slappy bracelets included in the set with various trims and decorations (also included). The colorful book shows how to make all kinds of lovable animal pals. 

This book/activity set retails for $18 US.

   

Pros:
  • Original and satisfying art activity.

 

Cons:
  • The bracelets may not stand up to much wear and tear.
