Last year I shared about our Christmas Story bracelet we made for our Sunday School class. Well, I’ve changed a few things. The general Christmas story bracelet is staying the same, but I decided to add a poem for the kids to take home.
I’ve always been rather fond of rhyming poems for children, but I’ll have to admit I’m not the best at creating them. So, I turned to Jeff, because he’s much better at it. He took my rather clumsy Christmas story poem and turned it into a great bit of poetry (in my not the least bit biased opinion).
Supplies for the Christmas Story Bracelet
These are the quickest and easiest way to get all of the supplies, not the most economical necessarily. Sometimes convenience wins out in my house.
- Bead Box Kit
- Jingle Bells 1/2-Inch, 48/Pkg, Gold
- 125-Piece Multi Glitter Star Beads
- Chenille Kraft Big Box Of Pipe Cleaners(pipe cleaners are easy for kids to string beads onto, you could also use yarn, but that is harder)
Creating the Christmas Story Bracelet
As I went back to update this post I realized there are no instructions, so you simply follow the order of the poem for putting on the beads, it’s that simple.
Princess likes it, even if it’s not clear from the shot. She’s modeling my version, which has an orange star……. I accidentally cut the yarn for hers too short, so I need to fix her necklace.
