Children are so proud when they create something of their very own. In this activity your child will not only create their own piece of jewelry, they will go a step further in creating materials for the jewelry as well.
Little ones will select magazines or newspaper and together we will cut or tear our pages and carefully roll them into beautiful beads. After we have created our beads children will string each bead onto yarn. By the end your child will have a beautiful necklace or bracelet they will wear with pride!
This activity promotes extended focus as the child participates in every aspect of the project, from creation of materials to a final product. To boot it imparts important lessons about ways to reduce, reuse and recycle.
- Old magazines, newspapers, recycled paper
- Glue or tape
- Pipe Cleaners/Yarn
As parents, it's important to make sure that activities are age appropriate and that allergies or medical conditions are communicated as you see fit.
