Craft Time: Jelly Bean Necklace

Posted by   + Show Post

           Jelly Bean Necklace

By: Tania Cowling

Difficulty: Easy

Age: 4 and up

Parental supervision is recommended

Young children enjoy making and wearing this fun jelly bean necklace craft from construction paper.

What you'll need:

  • Colored construction paper
  • Hole punch
  • Yarn
  • Tape
  • Scissors
  • Straws

How to make it:

  1. Cut out a variety of paper jelly beans from colored construction paper.
  2. Use a hole punch to make a hole in the center of each bean.
  3. Cut plastic straws into pieces about one-half to one inch in length.
  4. Take a length of yarn (enough to easily fit over your child's head) and show your child how to string his necklace using the paper beans as necklace beads and the straw pieces as spacers.
  5. Wrap a piece of tape around one end of the yarn to make a pretend needle (this will make it easier to thread the pieces).
  6. Finally, tie the ends together. Now count the jelly beans in your child's necklace. (This is also a great activity for honing your child's fine motor skills.)
