Colorful string friendship bracelets

Friendship Bracelet Kit


Remember how much fun making friendship bracelets was as a kid? Your child and her friends will love it too!

You can make little kits with string, beads, fishing wire, clasps, or anything else you find at the craft store. Put it all in a decorative little box with instructions for the kids to make at home, or use it as a party activity and let kids take their creations home.

Just remember small beads and clasps are a choking hazard, so save this one for the older kids.
