are back and more popular than ever, making them a perfect craft for a summer play date. But what do you do when you've got a multi-age group, with some kids too young for braiding thread or stringing tiny bead? Or if your crew is just too tiny or too active to even consider that kind of project?
Easy. Set the big kids up with their materials, then get the little kids started on these simple preschool-sized friendship bracelets. They'll feel like big kids -- since they're doing the same project -- but rather than someone making a bracelet for them, they can actually do this project themselves.
Here's what you'll need:
- toilet paper or paper towel tubes, one for each child
- poster paint -- preferably white
- multiple colors of tissue paper, cut into small squares
- paper plate or cardboard
- glue (optional)
Then just follow the easy steps in the gallery below.
