Faemom Crafts for Toddlers, Preschoolers and Kids

Dollar Necklace Kits

Posted on: June 22, 2009

I picked up a couple of bead necklace kits because they were a buck and wondered what it could hurt.  Some days I just can’t find a craft I like to do with the boys that I have all the materials.  I think this would be a great activity for older kids but not toddler or preschool age.  The problem is that the picture beads (the skull and cross bones and the monkey) didn’t have big enough holes.  I had to push the elastic thread through the hole with a needle, and I’m just not ready to let my almost-four-year-old handle a needle.  The big colored beads were perfect for little fingers.  But next time I want to make necklaces with the boys, I’m going to spring for more expensive beads.

The back of the packaging/directions.  So damn simple.
