Three of Our Favorite DIY Bracelet Crafts for Kids

June 2021

Looking to keep your kids occupied for a bit while cooped up at home? Today, we’re bringing back a childhood staple – friendship bracelets! There are so many different types of bracelets for your kids to make. A custom-made accessory is exactly what you need to complete all of your cute outfits. Head to the store together and choose string and beads in all of your kid’s favorite colors. Have fun coordinating them together before getting home and starting the craft! 

Friendship bracelets are a classic summer craft. They’re a great way to work on hand-eye coordination, while also keeping your little ones busy and occupied. Making friendship bracelets can also be super relaxing and meditative. It’s a great way to get the kids away from screens and creating something. They also make the best homemade gift for family and friends, or something they can proudly wear and tell people they created!   

Mash knots braceletMasha_knots has a great YouTube tutorial where she teaches you to make the classic string friendship bracelet. For this one, all you’ll need is some string and tape. Let your kids pick out the string in their favorite colors and get braiding! Making string bracelets is a great way to pass the time during a long summer day. Set up camp in the sun, put on a great playlist, and start creating. The repetitive motions of this craft can be super relaxing. These bracelets work as cute anklets, too!  

DIY Glitter Tube BraceletsWe love these glitter tube bracelets from Crafty Girls. This one is designed for kids, but a bit more hands-on, so make sure there’s an adult around to supervise. These glitter bracelets will match your kid’s favorite kidpik fashions perfectly! They’re super fun and sparkly and a fun new twist on a classic friendship bracelet. This is the perfect activity for a rainy summer day indoors.  

Colorful beads

Next up is the classic beaded bracelet! For this one, you’ll just need string and beads. You can even get letter beads and let your kids make a bracelet that says their name. OR you can make them say the name of your favorite clothing subscription box for kids! Before you start stringing the beads, lay them all out in your desired pattern. Do they want a solid color, or a rainbow? Have fun mixing and matching the colors and adding their name or favorite saying with letter beads!
