64 - Wooden Bead Necklaces

For the most part we've spent our summer outdoors enjoying those things you should while the warmth lasts, but on the occasional rainy day or when I just need Abel to stay entertained we've turned to indoor crafts. Recently I took him to the craft store, grabbed a couple of bags of wooden beads and let him pick out whatever paint colors and leather cord he wanted. Bead necklaces seemed simple enough for a three year old to make by himself. I had no idea how into it he would be. He patiently painted each bead with multiple colors and they turned out very cool and marbleized. So far he has spent two afternoons making necklaces for himself, Ansel, and me. We love 'em!
