Saturday, April 18th partners CHARM IT! and Crayola held an event at Dylan’s Candy Bar in NYC. It was for their Design-A -Charm Contest. Kids were invited to the event and encouraged to design an original charm for the chance to have it produced as an actual CHARM IT! charm.
It was a packed house and my daughter was very excited to get creative and design a charm. I think she did over ten designs. She loves drawing and I was happy to see her put her skills to good use. Hopefully one of her designs will come to life.
She’s always been a fan of charms and girly accessories. I loved the way the staff wore the charms for necklaces as well as bracelets. They showed us the winning charms from their last contest. Kids know what they like and it shows in these wonderful charms.
There was a photo booth for the kids and parents with different charm it props and a cute background. We had fun with that. Cupcakes that looked like one of the charms. Breakfast foods and beverages were also provided.
These charms were tested in highly accredited labs and are safe. This is a big plus in my book. Here is a list of ways to care for your charms courtesy of CHARM IT!
Follow these basic care tips and enjoy your CHARM IT! collection!
Remove CHARM IT! before engaging in rigorous activities or sports for safety.
Remove CHARM IT! before hand-washing, bath and showers and swimming in chlorine pools or salt water.
