Gel-a-Peel Accessory Craft Kits {Holiday Gift Idea}

accessories

When I was growing up I remember being so excited when I received crafting kits as gifts. My favourite ones were always the ones that allowed you to create a piece of jewelry. So when we received Gel-a-Peel kits in the mail the other day, it’s safe to say I was equally as excited as my daughter was.

Now the kits are recommended for ages 8+ and my daughter is 3, so  while she certainly can try and use the kits, her designs ended up being giant globs. This made it even easier for us to enjoy together, she simply provided the design ideas and I put them in motion. We created bracelets, a keychain, a hair clip and of course a new phone case for me.

With an assortment of colours at our finger tips the combinations were endless. We had neon colours, glitter colours and my personal favourite pure gold! I loved how the kit came with different tip options for your designs. Just as if you were to ice a cake there were round tips, spike tips, start tips, etc. Should I make a mistake while designing the gel was easy to wipe off and start again. All of the gel tubes came with ends to keep the gel fresh and so it doesn’t harden in the cap. When it came to clean up time I found it easiest to remove the tip from the tube and let the gel dry in it. Once the gel was dried I simply used the cleaning tool and plucked out the dried gel.

We will most certainly be using this kit again and again and it certainly won’t be long before I am no longer needed to assist. While we don’t have any other girls on her Christmas shopping list, I will be adding Gel-a-Peel to our list of must haves for future birthday gifts in the new year.
