I don't know where my four-year-old got her love for all things sparkly. I guess it's a typical, age appropriate fascination, since I don't wear much jewelry. I sometimes wonder if the author of Fancy Nancy knows my daughter. (Wait, isn't Nancy's mother described as "plain"? I think that's a little harsh, don't you?) My daughter's favorite activity is beading and she told me she would like a "real jewelry maker" for Christmas. Crayola's Jewelry Boutique is going to make my bauble loving girl very happy. And, I have to admit, I'm a little excited, too.
The Crayola Jewelry Boutique ($19.99) comes with everything you need to create marbled, colorful beads. Just place some Model Magic into the jewelry spinner and the spinner swirls the clay into unique, fabulous beads. Use the beads to create necklaces, bracelets, charms and earrings. Then, you're open for business!

I'm really looking forward to making jewelry with my little girl. (Crayola's Jewelry Boutique is for older girls, so I plan on helping her a lot.) I wonder if she'll let me wear some of our creations. I could use a little more sparkle in my wardrobe. At least, that's what she tells me!
