When my sisters and I were children, we always loved playing “Bingo” at our birthdays (my one sister may have even consumed a bingo chip…). Thus, we decided to alter this object filled with happy memories, changing its use! Materials Bingo chips Drill (to be used by an adult with safety googles, a mask and we made the holes over a carpet sample) Lace Beads Directions Have an adult drill two holes into your bingo chips as shown. We found that you want to apply a slow steady pressure so as not to crack them. Lace your bingo chip beads onto a lace with any other types of beads. Our daughter had a good idea for collaborating on this type of project- have one person lace from one end and another on the other side. Enjoy your necklace or give it to a friend! Extras Add a bit of craft glue to the back of your chips and arrange them on a canvas board to create images. Allow to dry overnight and decorate your space. A brother/ sister collaboration: A card for a friend: Purpose Working with small objects (developing one’s fine motor skills) Re-using/ re-imagining Safety Notes Bingo chips can be a choking hazard, therefore be sure to keep them out the reach of children 0-3 years of age or those that tend to put them in their mouths. We suggest that you wear a smock and use a craft tray to protect your clothing and work surfaces when working with glue. Yarn, lace etc. can be a strangulation hazard, therefore be sure to remove your necklace for play (e.g., on the playground) Please like & share: Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
