Child Health Day

Contributor post by Mairi from mairidesign

It’s Child Health Day on 1st October. When a child is ill, we may not always be able to ease their discomfort but, if we can bring out a smile or a giggle, we’ve helped a little. The Christmas in July team would like to share what they have in their shops that would make a child happy.

In the USA, Child Health Day is held on the first Monday of October, elevating the public’s knowledge and interest in children’s health.

Gari Anne from BeadLoversKorner says

Little girls love jewelry and this bracelet with a kitty cat and cute paw print beads is colorful and will put a smile on her face! She can then enjoy collecting charm beads to add to the bracelet making it a special and meaningful bracelet for her to wear.

I agree little girls love jewelry! They love Santa and Christmas even more so, which makes this necklace/earring set a real hit! Mom can even buy one so it’s a mommy & me set.

Margie Sarrao from ZenCatPottery says

These copper hoop earrings feature olive lampwork glass beads. The beads are handmade and have a wonderful rustic look to them! They are smooth, but they look textured. Their color and rustic-textured look make them perfect for Fall!
