Beaded Friend Anklet

The traditional people are known for their beautiful beaded necklaces and jewelry.

Wearing the beaded creation you make today as an anklet will help you remember the daily theme Follow, as you learn to follow in Jesus' footsteps.


1. Have children decide on the pattern in which they want to string their beads onto the         plastic sting.

2. Use the plastic  string provided, then double the string, leaving one end with the loop          and one end with the open strings.

3. Tie a knot at the loop end of the plastic string, leaving a 3 inch loop of strings as a tail        end.

4. Thread  beads from the open string end as desired.

5. Tie a double knot at the open end to secure the beads, leaving a 3 inch tail of string            beyond the knot.

6. Put around the children's ankles and tie the two ends together, and take a walk with         your new anklet!
