Like many girls in primary school, Eliza loves JoJo Bows.
I tried resisting it for a while, but when every child at school is wearing one it becomes inevitable that we would give in at some point.
We started with the smaller 8cm JoJo Bows which suit Eliza’s fine hair perfectly and she keeps them all stored on her Hair Helper next to her bed and carefully selects which ones she wants to wear each day.
Over the half term holidays we were given the chance to make a bow the JoJo way with the Bow Maker Set.
There are enough accessories in this cool crafts set to create 4 JoJo Bows, with pink, green, multicoloured and blue ribbons, sparkles, glue and the all important hair clips.
The JoJo Bow Maker is easy to set up and we were soon ready to follow the instructions to make our first bow.
It was from here we struggled. The set is aimed at girls age 5+ but I was doing this with Eliza (6) and her friends aged 9 and 11 and we really struggled to follow the instructions.
I searched YouTube for an official video to follow and there was none and other video reviews didn’t show up how to do it either and just showed people struggling or with the finished article.
Finally, after several failed attempts we figured out how to thread the ribbon in the correct way (you need to tuck it under, not over) and we were ready to complete our bows.
Once you’ve finished, add the unique JoJo Siwa charms for that finishing touch to your creations.
The bows are not quite as neatly finished as the real thing, but all three girls were very proud of their unique creations.
If you buy this kit for Christmas, be prepared to help as it is a little tricky to master, but once you have it figured out you can buy more ribbon and keep making as many bows as you like.
