Before having kids I loved making beaded bracelets in my spare time. Now a mom of 3 young kids, I do not get tons of spare time. When I do, making bracelets is not on my list of things to do. Taking a long hot shower, drink a cup of coffee, taking a quiet walk…. those might be the things I rather do. But I do love crafting, playing, learning, and getting in the kitchen with the kids. These things keep us busy and we have fun doing them. So I thought to myself instead of using my spare time to make bracelets, why not make bracelets with the kids. I decided on a simple Button Bracelet for us to create. It was fun spending time with my kids and crafting too. So glad they loved their button bracelets we made.

Supplies/what we used:
multicolored buttons Blumenthal Lansing Favorite Findings Basic Buttons Assorted Sizes, 130/Pkg, Citrus
To start, cut a piece of string long enough to fit the kid’s wrist with some extra room. I took one end and made a loop. I tied a knot at the bottom of the loop. Make the loop big enough for the button to fit through.
Now thread the buttons you pick out on to the string. We had yellow and orange string we used.
Once you have the buttons on you picked out, pick out one more button. This button needs to be able to fit through the loop we already made. Take the bracelet and make sure it fits well around the kid’s wrist before you tie on the button. I had to leave a little string to make sure the button bracelet fit. So I left room on the bracelet and then knotted or tied the button on the end. I cut the loose string.
Now the kids had simple and easy button bracelets to wear. They got so excited they got to help make them.
