Christian Salvation Bracelet Kits - makes 50 Children - Teens Bracelets
These bead packs consist of 50 of each colour bead & 15 metres of flat wax cotton cord. The kit will make up 50 bracelets. Instructions for making the bracelet will be included in the pack.
Some denominations might not like all of these colours, and we are happy to make up a special pack with whichever colours you prefer. However we do have another listing available on this website for 5 colours.
Here is a bit of information so you can see how the activity might be conducted:-
Be prepared for your class -
Cords - Have your cords prepared by cutting 25cm lengths and making an overhand knot approximately 9-10cm from one end.
Beads - Children benefit from the tactile experience of sifting through a bowl of beads to find the colour they need. You could put enough of each colour into a bowl for each table, or, if your children tend to be a bit disruptive on this kind of activity, you could have the beads pre-prepared in any way you think will work for the kids.
Activity - Speak about the colour of the bead they are threading, and what it is representing on the bracelet. Do this for each colour.
Finishing the Bracelet - Tie an overhand knot on each bracelet after the last bead threaded on. Now you can either make a sliding adjustable knot finish, if you have a helper and a bit of time (maybe as you are tying the bracelets you could continue the conversation about the colours). If you do not have much time, you might be best to tie each bracelet to the child's wrist, allowing a bit of movement room so they can roll the bracelet off when they want to remove it.
Bead Shack's knowledge is not to be taken as 'gospel' (pun intended) on this activity. However most schools at some time, order these coloured beads for the scripture classes, especially towards the end of the last term.
