Step #1
Use a bead as an anchor by tying a knot through the bead, leaving some slack so that you can tie it together in the end.
Step #2
String beads on the string until your Lil’ has created a bracelet big enough for themselves. You can encourage your Lil’ to create patterns using the different animals or the different colors, but it is also okay for them to just create however they feel.
Step #3
Tie the ends of the strings together creating a fitted bracelet for your Lil’ and cut away any excess string.

Teacher Tip

If you are using string that frays, you could use a lighter to melt the ends together.
