Friendship Necklace

What You Need:

  • 12" or more of thin elastic cord
  • Charms or beads of your child's choice
  • Pliers
  • Needle
  • Scissors
  • Jump rings (optional)

What You Do:

  1. Have your child arrange her chosen charms and beads on a flat surface until she is satisfied with the design. Use jump rings to attach charms if your child is using a chain link necklace.
  2. Cut the elastic cord to fit, allowing four extra inches to tie off the cord.
  3. Help your child to string the charms and beads on the elastic cord, making sure that there are no gaps. Encourage her to enlist her creativity to make the necklace unique and colorful! Your child can use her friend's birthstone, name, or a special personalized (such as horses or flowers).
  4. Ask her to tie the ends in a sturdy knot and trim the elastic ends to keep them from coming apart.
