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.
To create a colorful, wearable necklace for celebrating Independence Day.
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
Paint wooden beads in red, white and blue tones. Allow the painted beads to dry.
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.
Once the beads are dry, string the red, white and blue painted beads in any pattern desired.
After stringing the desired number of beads, remove the tape from the end and tie the two ends together in a tight knot.
