As I mentioned yesterday, we’re still celebrating Earth Day around here! We just moved, so I have lots of empty packing tape rolls laying around. They are the perfect size and shape for a preschooler’s bracelet, so I’ve been saving them. This seemed like the perfect project to go with yesterday’s paper bead necklace. Ready to get started?
What You Need:
- Large Empty Tape Roll (packing tape, duct tape) or toilet paper roll, cut and taped together to make bracelet
- Crayons or Paint
What You Do:
Begin by having kids color the cardboard bracelets with crayons or markers.
After the bracelet is colored, have the kids put stickers all over. This is great for fine motor skills. Having fun yet?
As you can see, the bracelet also doubles as a “spot-a-scope”. I think that’s a Diego reference, but I’m not sure!
Chipmunk liked this activity, she even made me a bracelet!
Lovely, isn’t it?
