What It Is
Toys "R" Us has a new collection of craft kits inspired by actress Victoria Justice, who kids might know from the Nickelodeon series Victorious, among others. The Totally Me! by Victoria Justice do-it-yourself line includes the Decorate Your Own Fashion Rings kit, which lets kids decorate different rings in awesome shapes, including a mustache, heart, sunglasses, and more. The kit comes with seven rings, three tubes of glitter (blue, silver, and pink), a container of assorted gemstones, a double-sided sticker sheet, and instructions.
To create a ring, attach the matching double-sided sticker to the ring you've chosen. Removing the double-sided stickers from the sticker sheet is difficult to do. We found that it worked pretty well if you remove the top layer of the sticker, place the ring on top of the exposed sticky layer and apply pressure, then lift up on the ring. The sticky layer should now be stuck to your ring. Pick some colorful gemstones to stick onto the ring, and then sprinkle some glitter on top. Shake the ring to remove any excess glitter.
Why It’s Fun
This is a fun and creative activity that will appeal to kids who love making and decorating their own fashion accessories. When kids are done, they'll end up with wearable, one-of-a-kind jewelry.
Who It’s For
Decorate Your Own Fashion Rings is for ages 8 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
Working with the glitter can be messy, so you might want to cover your workspace to make cleaning up the glitter a little easier.
The gemstones are very small and can be difficult to pick up. You might want to use tweezers to make it easier to pick up and place the gemstones onto your rings.
