Letter of the week: R
Saint of the Week: St. Rose of Lima
Craft: Easy Rosary
Materials Needed to Make This Rosary Craft:
- Pipe Cleaners
- Pony Beads
Start by having your kids string 10 beads of their choice onto a pipe cleaner. (If you're trying to conserve materials for a large number, half a pipe cleaner will work). This is super easy for everyone, especially small children, because pipe cleaners are stiff so the stringing is easy.
Bring the pipe cleaner around in a circle and twist it shut.
String on one more bead for the "Our Father".
Cut off the extra piece and twist it around to make
the cross. Trim with scissors where needed.
These were super fun and easy to make. Chances are, your children will want to make several! :-) I love the one we shaped into a heart!
