Crafting with Kids

Spending more time at home with the kids? Come together as a family with fun beading and jewelry making projects! Our design team has selected some of our favorite products, along with inspiration projects and videos, to get you started.

INSPIRATION PROJECTS: Help your little beaders create easy-to-wear stretch bracelets with stretch cord, and have fun mixing and matchings beads for a truly unique design. Our Mr. Kitty bead mix is full of fun discoveries! Pick up a macrame board and start knotting away like when you were at summer camp, or create chunky paracord bracelets or keychains in anticipation of a future adventure. Save time with a kit and get all the components and instructions to make a complete piece of jewelry. The Wrapit Loom by Rainbow Loom is also a popular option and comes with everything you need to make up to 5 colorful bracelets, plus we have dozens of free patterns and projects for the Wrapit Loom also.

For more project inspiration, see our basic beading projects, craft projects, and beginner level beading projects, as well as our complete Be at Home, Bead at Home guide.

IMPORTANT: Beads and other components may pose a choking hazard for small children. Adult supervision required.
