Suitable for ages 5+
 
What child doesn’t like to do arts and crafts?  I know growing up, I always looked forward to this in school and on rainy days at home.  So, it is only fitting that my daughter loves arts and crafts, too.  Prior to giving birth to our second daughter 2 weeks ago, I sat down one rainy afternoon with Savannah and we personalized the Happily Ever After jewelry box from the Orb Factory just for her.  What a great time we had together.  Savannah loved choosing the colored mosaic stickers and placing them all over her jewelry box.  
 
These kits, from the Orb Factory, are great for kids through teens, as it offers a child the ability to be creative and design according to their style and color preference.  The Orb Factory offers an assortment of DIY kits that range from jewelry boxes to jewelry accessories, like bracelets and crowns.  So, based on your child's age, you are bound to find a kit that will offer them hours of enjoyment, as they create their own personalized masterpieces.

Worried that the sticky tiles and jewels will not adhere well?  I was too at first, but having had created this jewelry box a few weeks ago and with daily use by my daughter, I have not seen a tile or jewel come off.  The strong adhesive that is used really does hold these pieces securing to the jewelry box.

My daughter especially loved the large assortment of sparkly tiles that were included in the kit.  And, by the time she was done sticking the pieces to her jewelry box, the look on her face of accomplishment and excitement for having just personalized her own jewelry box was priceless.  We then brought it up to her room and found a spot for it on her dresser.  Then, we loaded her jewelry into it.  She hasn’t stopped playing with it and looking at since we put it in her room.  And, she loves showing it offer to family and friends.

Overall, I was highly impressed with the quality of this kit and loved how it included everything that we needed to complete this DIY project.  In the past, I have had to run out to the craft store, as kits I had bought were missing glue or other items needed to complete projects.  And, the assortment of kits available through the Orb Factory website is amazing.  It was hard narrowing it down to this kit, when I was given to the opportunity to review a product, as each one looked like it would be fun to do.

With the holidays right around the corner, why not stop by the Orb Factory today and pick up a kit or two for your children.  These make for great rainy day projects, as well as excuses (like we need them) to spend Mommy and Me time together.  I plan to buy more kits to stash away for my daughters.  They will make for great birthday and holiday gifts.
