If you’re looking for a simple, low-prep activity to celebrate Canada Day, LOOK NO FURTHER! This Canada Day necklace is simplicity at its finest and you’ll be getting all the Canada Day compliments with this patriotic accessory
WHAT YOU NEED:
red and white beads
red and white straws
HOW TO MAKE:
Cut a piece of white string based on how long you would like your necklace to be. We like our necklaces to go on and off over the head so that we don’t have to worry about tying and untying knots!
Cut red and white straws into small pieces.
Add beads and straw pieces to your string to create a celebratory necklace for Canada’s Birthday!
Secure the beads onto the necklace with a knot!
Create necklaces for your friends! They easily fit into envelopes so you can send them in the mail!
Which beads are your favourite?
Can you give an example of a pattern we could make with our beads?
Canada’s flag colours are red and white! Do you know which colours are in the flags of other countries?
THINGS TO CELEBRATE & ENCOURAGE:
safe use of scissors
fine motor skills (beading is great practice!)
tying a knot
independent decision making during creative process
We sure did jazz up the lakeside look with these beaded beauties! They are easy peasy and can be done outside on a blanket – enjoying Canada the best way possible (outdoors!!!)
