Mother's Bracelet with Funprint Heart


 Just wanted to show you all what the kiddos in my Early Intervention Class were making for their mothers.  My friend Demetria and I came up with this cute little beaded bracelet idea.  We had originally planned to make the beads out of dough, but that turned out to be a really bad idea.  I found these wooden beads at Hobby Lobby and we just painted them in nice summery colors (turquoise and navy).  We had the kiddos make fingerprint hearts and let them work on their fine-motor skills by lacing them onto the ribbon.  If you plan to do this with your kiddos, you will most likely need to tape the edge of the ribbon to make it skinny enough to fit through the hole on the bead.  We only put five beads on our bracelets (this was a cost issue as we had 12 kids to buy for), but it would look super-cute beaded all the way around.  Just make sure to knot where the beads end so they don't fall off when mom unties the bracelet.  Also, use caution with the beads and small children as they can be a choking hazard.  If you used big enough beads, you could do multiple fingerprint hearts for all the kids in a family.  This would be a true mother's bracelet!
