Gel-a-peel is still a fairly new type of craft material. It is a gel which comes in squeezy pens and can be used to make various things. The gel sticks once dry and it comes in lots of colours with many design ideas. We have had quite a few packs and our latest one is this one.
This set was sent to my children so that they can create cards for Mother’s Day and that is exactly what Jordanna has been doing. The gel is quite easy to use and patternsare simple once we got used to it. The letters can be a bit more tricky. Sometimes we do need to squeeze the tubes quite hard to get a bit out. Anyway here is an early Mother’s Day card made with gel-a-peel.
I really like the shininess of these pearly colours as they seem to catch the light and look really effective. I think Jordanna has done a fairly good job here as it can be hard to write with gel-a-peel.
The bracelets and other types of jewellery can be made using the included templates, left to dry and then worn. Gel-a-peel has endless uses and is not too messy providing it’s done on a mat or in one area.
Packs vary in price and are sold at most toy shops.
Gel-a-Peel is recommended for children aged 8 +
