I am so pleased to be introducing to you today a new guest poster, Nadia of Teach Me Mommy! Nadia is here to share some fun friendship necklaces – a great tween or teen craft from sleepovers or any day.
I remember as a tween loving anything I can share with a friend – it made us feel special. Take that an extra level by making it yourself!
Thank you for the opportunity to share this fun friendhip necklace craft with you!
Tweens will love making these friendship necklaces from air drying clay! This is a super fun activity for play dates and the kids get to take home their creations, together with wonderful memories!
What you need to make friendship necklaces:
(Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links.)
- Two colours of air drying clay (alternatively one can use salt dough, although it is heavier and take long to air dry)
- Cookie cutters (we used stars)
- Alphabet cookie stamps (one could use a toothpick to make the initials too)
- Alphabet cookie stamps
How to make your friendship necklaces:
1. Flatten the clay(no thicker than 50mm) and press the shapes:
6. Add the clay pieces(pendant and beads) to the string.
Voila! You have made lovely necklaces!
Tip: Play around with different colours to see which colours compliments each other best.
A lovely idea for your Tweens to try when they have friends over!
