Make Friendship Bracelets

Friendship bracelets have been a favorite craft for kids for some time. The craft is also valuable for teaching fine motor skills, math skills, and language arts skills as well. Children involved in arts and crafts be shown how to use these same skills to make progress across the curriculum.

Friendship bracelets can be made from a variety of different materials. They are often accented with letter or other beads to personalize and decorate. Learning how to create these bracelets and making them is a way to increase fine motor skills for all children. The skills involved with reading and following directions, sketching, planning, and designing patterns that are more complicated involves language arts and math skills. It is important to teach children the math and language vocabulary without ruining the fun of the activity involved.
