Hello, friends! I have been quiet for the past few weeks as my kids started remote learning three weeks ago. (Yikes!)
My husband and I are still trying to adapt to this new schedule. Honestly, it hasn’t been easy trying to work from home, to help our two school age kids and to chase after a 16-month-old baby. Hopefully, we will get into a routine very soon. Fingers crossed!
The kids have been spending a lot of time in front of the computer due to this virtual learning experience, so I have been trying to find fun craft activity ideas they can do either during their breaks or after they are done with school for the day.
The other day, during their lesson break, they started creating their own friendship bracelets using Threadship.
I have to admit, our first attempt was a complete fail because I chose a friendship bracelet pattern that was not suitable for their ages. My mistake! They started to get frustrated so I decided to do some more research on You Tube and found a much simpler yet fun DIY Friendship Bracelet pattern they could easily follow! They started to get excited again!
If you are looking for an activity for your kids to keep them away from the computer for a while, these friendship bracelets will do it. They require minimal supplies. All you need is: thread in the colors of your choice, tape and scissors! Just remember to pick a technique that your kids feel most comfortable with. Make it fun for them!
Friendship bracelets will keep them engaged, focused and challenged! Not to mention crafting them can be pretty relaxing, too. My kids couldn’t wait to see the final project!
We would love to keep trying new friendship bracelet patterns. I can’t wait to see what the kids and I can create! All the color combo possibilities get us super excited!
Tell me, have you created friendship bracelets before? Let us know if there’s any pattern you think my kids and I should try! I saw a rainbow, heart and watermelon patterns. They might be our next picks!
Thanks for stopping by, friends!
