We bought some little gifts for the girls teachers this year but also wanted to include something they had made themselves. Beaded jewellery is perfect for this - both our girls were able to make necklaces and bracelets on their own without assistance and chose the beads themselves as well.
I love them so much I'm going to ask them to make me some for Christmas too!
(ours were from Spotlight for $5 a bag, one bag made all of these pictures below and still enough left over for another one)
