Easy Tutorial for Kids - How to Make a Hair Elastic Bracelet

By on Saturday, September 19, 2009 4 Comments


If you sell jewelry at craft shows then you'll know from the kids hovering around that the love of bling starts early. But what if the little girls you know are too young or you don't really want them to delve into your bead collection?  Here is a solution - colorful bracelets made from inexpensive hair elastic. You can buy those in large packets at the dollar store.


Children can easily make multiple bracelets themselves and their friends. The technique is the same for making jump ropes from elastic bands. Indeed I never had store bought jump ropes whilst I was growing up because we made our own. The only tricky thing is joining the two ends so the video from SimpleKidsCraft will help.
