We Made Beads


We made our own beads from polymer clay. The girls had a great time and it was so easy. I baked them in the oven at 275 for 15 mins. and then let them make bracelets. I'll definitely let them do this again. It wasn't expensive. I had a 40% off coupon for Micheals and got a pack of 12 colors for $6.00! It wasn't messy. The only thing that needed cleaning up was their fingers. They got to be creative. Plus, they didn't need my help. Which meant I could make some too! All in all for $6 bucks Crea and Abby had fun and it kept them busy for awhile.
