The moms loved all the pretty sparkly jewelry, of course, and realised that starting a jewelry making hobby with their daughters might just be an amazing idea. . Cost: Between R22.00 and R120.00 per container of stones collected (prices depending on the size of the bag / container). . . . . . . #mylifeinphotos #ilovesouthafrica #lifewithkids #neverstopexploring #familyfriendlyza #capetownbest #wanderlust #lifestyleblogger #momlifestyle #thatsdarling #familytravel #flashesofdelight #travelblogger #travelwithkids #wedotourism #smilemore #withkids #budgettravel #budgetfriendly #familytime #kidfriendly #kidswhoexplore #scratchpatch
