Sometimes the simplest projects are the most fun. These beaded bracelets are easy but very satisfying for a preschooler to make. The finished bracelets are pretty and make a great gift which a friend of any age can wear with pride. If you're making one as a present, try making a felt ladybird bag or easy gift box to put it in.

Time: 20 minutes
Age: Any age
Level: Easy

Materials
Selection of mixed beads
Elastic
Scissors
Sticky tape (optional)

Method
Tie a big knot in one end of the elastic. You will untie or cut this off later so you can make it chunky to ensure no beads fall off the end.

You can wrap a small piece of sticky tape around the other end to stop it fraying and make the threading process easier for young children.
Set out a selection of beads, ideally with different shapes, colours and textures.

Let the children sort through the beads and pick out their own selection to thread on to the elastic.

Threading beads onto elastic


When the bracelet is the right length, slide the beads along the elastic slightly, untie or cut off the chunky knot, and re-tie the two ends of the elastic neatly so that the two end beads join together.

Ready to trim


Ensure the knot is tightly tied then trim the ends of the elastic.
Admire!

You could also try threading a chunky button amongst the beads to make a pretend watch.
