Are you looking for a fun craft projects for kids? (Girl Scout leader; school teacher; home school mom) or trying to think of something fun you can make to give as gifts this year?

I have the perfect idea for you - make button bracelets! It is easy enough for kids to do and cute enough to use as homemade presents. All you need is a selection of buttons and some 1mm cord to string them on. Oh, and a little bit of imagination doesn't hurt, either!
Supplies

An assortment of buttons
Sharp scissors (small ones are ideal)
15 - 30 inches of 1mm cord
A ruler

Step 1: Getting Ready

Picture of Getting Ready
- Before you start, choose the buttons you want to use. You should use all 4-holed buttons or 2-holed buttons. (2 holes will be easier for young crafters to use). You can use one 2H button for the end button of a 4H bracelet if you want to.

- Try to pick a variety of sizes and textures and use colors that work well together.

- I like to cover my work area with a dishtowel to protect the table and it is easier to see my materials against white fabric.


It is very creative.
