The kids do lots of fun things at school to learn about and celebrate St. Patrick’s Day so we wanted to add this to their green attire for the day! Materials Yarn, cord etc. (Colours of the rainbow) Beads (Colours of the rainbow, we went with ones that had large holes so that we didn’t need a needle for this activity.) Scissors Directions Line up and cut your lengths of cord, yarn etc. to approximately the length of your arm. Measure this around your neck to make sure it is the length that you desire. Knot your cord, yarn etc. together. Lace your beads. We went through the hole and then came back through the bottom and went through again so as to hold the beads in place. Knot the end when you are done and then tie your two ends together. (Or sew on Velcro for an easy release.) Enjoy your necklace! Purpose Developing fine motor skills. Safety Notes Use scissors with care & supervision. Remove your necklace when playing (e.g, on the playground) to prevent strangulation. Beads can be choking hazard, therefore they should be kept out of the reach of children 0-3 years of age or those that tend to put things into their mouths.
