Jelly Bean Prayer Necklace Craft Kit
Great way to share the true meaning of Easter!
WONDERFUL way to share the Gospel message! Made these with 6-7 year-olds. The only way this craft could be better is if the laces were "tipped," but I took the advice of another reviewer and dipped the ends in fingernail polish and let them dry. Really helped the kids lace through the wooden beads.

Great craft for preschool and elementary children!
This was a fun craft for the preschool and elementary children at our church. The only difficulty was attaching the closure, which seemed to be permanent. Still the necklace was long enough to get over their heads easily.

I was excited to do this project with our class; thinking that the string for the necklace would be similar to the nativity necklace. It wasn't. The openings on the beads had to be opened further with scissors, and the string frayed everytime it went through the bead, which resulted in cutting the string & helping the kids put the string through the bead. Also, the little loops on the jelly beans kept falling off and had to be re-screwed in. This project required a lot of adult help & was not easy for kids to do on their own.

Good Craft for Little Ones!
This craft worked really well with all the kids. They enjoyed the finished product. It's also fairly easy to assemble, even for little fingers. I did have to take a needle to clean out some of the white beads so that the string could go through them easily, but that was an easy "fix". Some of the strings, after being pushed through the beads, had frayed ends that needed to be snipped to continue the project, but most didn't have a problem. Took about twenty minutes to finish for the youngest in the group (age 2), and ten minutes for the oldest (age 10). Good craft, and good lesson!

I ordered these for our 2nd and 3rd grade VBS class. As we assemble these, we are planning on eating jelly beans and discussing the colors and meanings. My daughter and I already put one together and it is rather nice. There is a misprint on the website as the card DOES say...Black is for the sins WE made (which is correct.)
