I recently came across a new trend in the GTA birthday party circuit. Beading Buds is a jewelry making party entertainment service that comes to your home (or venue of choice) to help your child and their guests create beautiful one-of-a-kind jewelry. Beading Buds specializes in children's birthday parties but has recently expanded their services to cater to corporate events, bachelorette parties, bridal showers and adult birthday parties. Beading Buds takes out the work of hosting the party.
As the host, you relax and enjoy yourself while the beading instructors entertain the children. The result is beautiful pieces of one-of-a-kind jewlery that your guests happily take home. Since the children take home the jewelry that they make, this becomes an environmentally friendly loot bag alternative to replace the generic loot bags filled with candy and plastic toys. Beading Buds parties also include customized electronic invitations, jewelry pouches for all the guests and free earrings and a princess tiara for the birthday girl.
What I like about Beading Buds is that beading parties encourage creative interest and build on a variety of skills important for a child’s development. While the children are having fun creating a unique piece of art, they are using their fine motor skills such as grasping, in-hand manipulation, and their hand-eye coordination when stringing the beads onto the wire. The children use their visual perceptual skills to design and execute the pattern that they use when creating their piece of jewelry.
Finally, the children are able to use their cognitive skills such as math skills and problem solving since they need to design their pattern and figure out what beads and how many beads are needed for the pattern. Perfect for ages 5 and up, Beading Buds customizes each party based on the age and amount of the children attending. They even have fun beading activities for boys, because boys love beading too.
