Here's a variation on an idea I found long ago... you've probably seen it around pinterest. Ezra was invited to a birthday party for a good friend and I thought this would be perfect for her creative little fingers!
I think I love this gift idea so much because I absolutely adored making friendship bracelets when I was in 5th grade. All the time. I constantly had these things pinned to my pants.
This guy is so easy to whip up, and there are so many different things you could do with it. Here is what I used:
A few cute little clip on charms. (butterfly, flip flop, heart)
thick card stock cut into small rectangles
small scissors (I actually used manicure scissors)
a large rubberband
embroidery floss of different colors
friendship bracelet booklet
plastic floss organizer
All you have to do is put it together!
And I couldn't help this second gratuitous shot. I'm not sure why. I just like the lighting. Or something. Maybe I'm weird.
If you're wondering, this makes an excellent gift for a creative little guy, too. I gave one to my nephew. I included key chain rings instead of charms so he can make keychains or bracelets.
