Here we are with another idea to fight back against the quarantine blues! Why don’t you try out this great creative kit-The Mascots! The kit includes all you need to make 5 beaded animal charms that are attached to a keychain. When I first saw the box, I was not sure that the project was good for 6 year olds. I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised to discover how easy it was to create animals that looked just like those on the box! In fact, I thought I would need to do a complete foto tutorial besides the video. However, after looking at the instructions included in the kit, I realized they were actually really clear. So I decided that we just needed a couple of pictures to show how the beads are blocked in place.

Step 1: Thread “A” through all the beads in the row. Thread “B” back through the hole in the opposite direction.

Step 2: Pull on the two threads in order to pull the beads up in line with the row before it.

That is all you have to do to create BEADED ANIMAL CHARMS! Follow the color coded instructions in order to create the different animals. The video shows all the steps – enjoy!
