An Activity for Preschoolers:

Celebrate Independence Day with necklaces bearing red, white and blue!

Before You Begin:

Gather the following materials to create these patriotic necklaces: plain wooden beads, paint, brushes, scissors, tape and yarn or cord.

Activity Goals:

To create a colorful, wearable necklace for celebrating Independence Day.

Furthermore:

Depending on the ages, abilities and preferences of the children, they may paint each bead a single color or use multiple colors on individual beads for even more unique designs.

Children may also create bracelets by following the same process with a smaller piece of yarn or cord.


Let's Get Started

STEP 1

Paint wooden beads in red, white and blue tones. Allow the painted beads to dry.

STEP 2

Cut a length of yarn or cord for stringing the beads and place a strip of tape at one end to keep the beads from falling off.

STEP 3

Once the beads are dry, string the red, white and blue painted beads in any pattern desired.

STEP 4

After stringing the desired number of beads, remove the tape from the end and tie the two ends together in a tight knot.
