24 Pony Bead Necklaces
I bought these to work on making necklaces with my daughter. They can be hard for little fingers to bead on since they are somewhat flexible and "bounce" around. Once the necklace was done my daughter loved it and wore it immediately, but word of advice--- make sure that YOU/adult takes the necklace off, or you will be picking up beads from all over! All in all not a bad deal and they can be reused once that beading gets boring.

Awesome as 'dog collars'
We had a 'puppy party' and these necklaces were perfect for beads on each side of a dog tag. The girls loved them! It was a great way to keep early arrivers to the party engaged as kids tricked in.

Good purchase for the event
The necklaces were a great deal for an event of over 230 girls. The necklaces were great for girls to keep their beads on as they traveled to different stations. The snap closure helped keep the beads from getting lost.

We have used these for several years at our Easter Eggstravaganza. We do an Easter Walk in which the kids make necklaces with beads representing parts of the story of Jesus. The necklaces work great as the children go through the walk & add beads at each station.

I love these for fine motor skills. It's worth the money to buy these instead of spending the time to make laces out of yarn & pipe cleaners. I will buy them each year!

Will work in a pinch.
I was going to use these for a rewards program for kids from age 6 to 11. They could not have been used as necklaces on older kids. They are a very hard plastic, so we were not able to wrap them around to use as bracelets for the older kids either. These would be cute to do as a craft with younger children, but they come apart pretty easy so there will be beads everywhere. I would recommend going with something that has a better latch and that has some actual give so that kids can take them on and off. These would also be good for fine motor skills for young children or kids with dexterity issues.

Don't work with foam beads
I bought these for a classroom of 3-4 year olds. They are great to use, but unfortunately I bought foam beads from OT to use on these and they don't work. The diameter of the holes on the foam beads are too small. I think these necklaces work best with "pony" style beads.

THESE ARE GREAT!
Great for kids of all ages! We had a wide age range (2 years-12 years) and they all loved making bracelets and necklaces, and I loved not having to cut or tie anything, no ones beads fell off... they are a great buy!!!!! Thanks OT!
