CHARM IT! Event Recap & Design-A-Charm Contest

If you have a little girl in your life between the ages of 5 and 14, chances are you’re pretty familiar with CHARM IT!

This past Saturday, the novelty jewelry brand in partnership with Crayola hosted a super girly event celebrating their 2015 Design-A-Charm Contest. Held at the uber trendy Dylan’s Candy Bar on the Upper East Side,  my mini-me and her best gal pal were treated to tasty pastries, including Magnolia Bakery cupcakes and of course candy!


Throughout the event, those in attendance were given entry forms to create and submit their best drawings using Crayola (crayons, pencils & markers) for a chance to have them turned into actual charms. Having the girls look through the yearbook of whimsical creations, which included everything from a pair of headphones to palm trees  allowed them to use their imaginations.


The contest was a creative activity that my daughter and her BFF really enjoyed, but that wasn’t where the fun ended. After the aspiring charm designs were drawn—the kids got camera-ready with fun props and took cute pics at the photo-booth station.

We had a fantastic time coloring, mingling and especially, indulging in sweets. Now our fingers are crossed in hopes that their designs made the cut.


If you’d like for your child to participate in the charming contest, you’re in luck! The contest runs through May 6th so you have to act FAST!

Did you collect charms as a little girl? Or do you STILL collect charms from adult jewelers like Pandora, etc?


  1. Wait, how is your daughter so tall? And I can feel her personality oozing through the pictures. I’m not ready!

      She is very tall. People think she’s in 7 or 8 when she’s only 5! She is a sweet girl…just don’t get her mad—she has a TERRIBLE temper! LOL
