While working with my key chain charms today, I noticed my little girl was feeling so bored. To cheer her up, I suggested to her to make beads bracelet. She got excited with the idea and was eager to start it right away.
At seven, her hands and eyes coordination are ready to work on smaller beads or beads with small loops. I opened up my storage boxes which contained new beads and trinkets and saved beads and trinkets from broken necklaces and bracelets. I encouraged her to use some of those colorful children's beads and my little girl made her selection like pinking candy. I do not buy jewelry making kits from the stores because I do not find that is interesting combination and it is pricey for me.
I like the random design bracelet that my little girl created. I adore handicrafts created by kids. They do not think and plan like adult instead they let their instinct guides them in their creativity. When she completed stringing the beads, I helped to tie a dead knot at the two ends. To add a little fun and uniqueness, I tied a little pink pompom it to the bracelet. My little girl loves it!
This would be a great party activity for girls. We may not have JoAnn in
Malaysia but they are many jewelry making supplies shops in , KL for beads shopping. Having that said, my favorite place to buy jewelry making supplies is China
Town . Bangkok
