Friendship Bracelets 35 Gorgeous Projects to Make and Give. For Children Aged 7 Years + by Lucy Hopping

You'll love these 35 stunning projects. All of them are made with easy craft techniques, including braiding, macrame and weaving. Many of them use basic materials, such as embroidery thread, beads and ribbon, with the addition of leather, brass nuts and rhinestones in some of the more advanced projects. Choose from four chapters: So Sweet, with ideas in a pastel palette; Tribal Attitude, inspired by Native American and African designs and boho chic; Nautical Knots - think stripes and seaside charm; and Neon Brights, infused with zesty colours and stand-out features. As well as bracelets, you'll find cuffs and headbands to make, and can even learn how to cover your headphone wires in braided thread. All the projects have clear step-by-step instructions and artworks, plus a skill level so that you can begin with the simplest designs and then try more advanced ones.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
