Hi, I am a GEMS counselor, but not a craft counselor. The craft counselor mentioned to me that she is looking for craft ideas. This seems like a good place to share craft ideas. I'll start with a GEMS craft that my own daughters still do at home.
Easy Friendship bracelet instructions:
Cut a 3 and a half inch diameter circle out of a cereal box. Cut eight 3/4 inch slots around the outside edge. Put a half inch hole in the middle. Note: none of the dimensions have to be exact.
Take 7 pieces of floss tie them together in a knot. Put the knot in the center hole of the cardboard. Put one piece of floss in each slot.
One slot will be empty. Count 3 strings strings from the empty slot. Take that string and put it in the empty slot. Repeat, until it is long enough. Always count in the same direction. The bracelet will form through the middle hole.
What crafts have worked well with your club?
