Friendship Bracelets!

Friendship bracelets are memorable handmade trinkets
because these are given as gifts and as tokens of friendship.
Kids love to make, collect, and wear these bracelets
because the colorful creations are also decorative!
Now to make kids paint these bracelets
they have to trace their hands and create great patterns
which is a great creative exercise on colors and lines!
Here are some of their works:
By Maia, age 5
By Amy, age 8
By Kayla, age 8
By Stella, age 7


By Samantha, age 10
Acrylic on illustration board.
One of several drawings and paintings that Samantha made in an hour in my workshop!
