Prep Work for today’s craft: Cutting out the rims of paper plates
Today we will make and decorate the frames. Here is our set-up for today’s portion of the craft:
The silhouettes can be found here – we printed and cut them out ahead of time.
For the Bead Pins craft, you will need:
– Pony Beads
– Many small safety pins
– A few large safety pins
– Sandwich baggies
Instructions and the cactus pattern for this craft can be found at Making Friends Crafts. The basic idea is that you take a pattern of pony beads and slip them onto small safety pins, which then go onto a large safety pin to make a design.
We helped simplify the process by pre-making baggies with the right number of pins and beads and an example of each pattern:

Then the kids began making them! Our younger students (age 6 & 7) needed help at times closing the pins or figuring out the pattern, but everyone ended up with a nice pin at the end.
