A mommy friend of mine posted on Facebook, this cool bead project, “How To Make a Solar System Bracelet”. The girls love bead projects plus I thought this was a good way to teach Emmy about the planets. It was our inspiration project of the day. As always, I usually put our own touch on it, just like we did on our previous “Let’s Count 1-10” project.
Here’s what we used:
Wire string (16 inches long)
10 colorful beads (1 representing the Sun, 9 representing the planets)
52 black medium spacer beads (represents meteors, asteroids and comets)
1 pair magnetic clasp
2 crimps (use to secure magnetic clasps to wire string)
The girls had a blast making this project plus Emmy mastered 6 of her planets, three to go. 🙂
