With St. Patrick's Day coming up I thought it was a perfect opportunity for my toddler to get some good hand to eye coordination practice in. I pulled out some of my awesome supplies received from Craftprojectideas.com and we decided to make some Good Luck Charm Necklaces for St. Patrick's Day.
As you can see in the picture above, we used Hemp Cord for our necklace string, some green Pony Beads, Metallic Shape Beads and Alphabet Beads. All of these can be found in the crafts section at your local Wal-Mart. We only used green Metallic Beads to stay true to the St. Patrick's Day theme.
My toddler LOVES stringing beads. She helped me pick out which metallic shapes she wanted to use in the necklaces and I helped her organize the beads on the table in the correct order before she starting stringing them.
Lila made a necklace for herself and one to send to one of her cousins as a special gift. They turned out so cute!
I love how accomplished Lila felt wearing her little necklace around. She kept saying, "It's so pretty!"
