I found this cute post on this webpage.... http://adventuresinmommydom.org/christmas-story-bracelet/ and this one http://littlewondersdays.blogspot.co.nz/2011/12/christmas-story-bracelet.html
about Christmas Story Bracelets and decided it would be a lovely way to make a memorable Christmas treasure in our hour and half activity.The bracelets could be made on Pipe cleaners or on bead wire..I liked the bead wire better because I wanted it to be a treasure, I did purchase more expensive beads, but they could be made with cheaper beads...(the story is just the same)
Here is the story and the link to the original post.... I wish I had pictures of our finished bracelets....they were pretty stunning and the kids loved them. I did suggest to our boys that they could make them into a long bookmark instead of a bracelet, but they were happy to keep them as is.
Story of the beads: (I printed this out nicely and laminated for the kids to take home)
