Jelly Bean Jewelry Craft for Kids
We've been doing Easter egg decorating all week in our Boredom Busters series. But it wasn't until I brought out a bag of jelly beans for this project that my ornery son suddenly got very interested in participating. This would be a great little activity for Easter morning, keeping kids occupied while the Easter bunny does his business. Or, if your little ones are too small to work a needle, you can make these and put them in their baskets.
1. Thread a needle with about 18 inches of thread.
2. Push the needle through the jelly beans one at a time. Show little ones how to be careful when pushing the needle through not to poke your fingers. And never push the needle toward your face or eyes.
3. When your bracelet is long enough tie the ends together.
