And now something for the pre-teens and teens in your household,
that are crafty:
The TRENDIY Art Headband Kit allows your teen to design, create and wear their own hair jewelry with Trendiy Art Headband Accessories. The kit makes up to 6 headbands and includes 9 different ribbons, 6 metal rings, 3 chains, and 1 elastic cord. For kids ages 8 and up/
’s ultimate goal is to stimulate young girls creativity and originality by introducing them to fashion DIY projects and by providing, through the activities, a certain self-satisfaction generated from a hands-on experience in fashion design. They want teens to learn to “Do It Yourself,” by providing complete and simple sets that allow them to unleash their imagination while having the tools to make it easy. In a generation where most things are digital and disposable, we develop the aspiration for physical objects to hold more personal meaning in our lives. Fashion is no exception. At they believe in making accessory crafting meaningful, by encouraging artistic potential, while learning values like patience, perseverance and pride of accomplishment.
As you can see, the colors selected for the accessories are very bright, and include current fashion trends like the black and white polka dotted ribbon, bright colors and chains. In checking out the kit, I really think it is more for older girls, say 10/11 up, due to the fashion designer aspect and the TRENDIY girls that are included in the TRENDIY magazine. The kit comes with its own magazine, which includes simple step-by-step instructions for the headbands, updates on the latest trends, runways and the next ‘it’ fashion designers, plus, columns, interviews with Girls and much more. The Girls are selected through the fan base of the TRENDIY Art social media followers,and are between 12-16 years old, and actual users of the TRENDIY product line. They are recruited and chosen, based on their personality and character, to reflect the vitality of the brand. The TRENDIY Blog offers more fashion advice and looks for your designing teen as well.
I think younger girls would be fine making the headbands, as the instructions are very clear (as you can see), but the fashion is older than they need to be wearing. So instead of having Miss Grace make a sample of the headbands, we decided to give the kit to a teen friend, as she LOVES making her own accessories, and I know she will be delighted with this kit.If you have a fashionista pre-teen/teen, then they will LOVE this kit. And I think the fashions are very appropriate for the age group of 12-16, that they are aiming for. So if you are looking for a Christmas present that combines fashion sense with crafting, this is the kit for your list!
