Paper Beads

ages 4-6


Paper scraps, scissors, glue, string

Activity Detail

This is a great way for your child to recycle paper scraps into jewelry. You can use large paper scraps from wrapping paper, scrapbook paper, or even magazines. Cut long, skinny triangles from the paper, and roll them around pencils, wide end first. Use a bit of liquid glue to hold the point of the triangle. You'll probably need to hold it in place for a few moments to let the glue set. Once the glue has set, slide the bead off the pencil. Make as many beads are you like, and then string them onto yarn for a colorful bracelet or necklace.
