It's Make it Monday | Let's Make Recycled Paper Beads

Creation Station | Arts and Craft Activities for Kids | Adult Crafting | Indoor Activities For Kids | Half Term Activities For Kids | Recycled craft

This activity is a great way of recycling old magazines whilst strengthening our fine motor skills.

What You Need:

- Old magazines

- A thin paintbrush or twig

- Glue stick

- A piece of elastic or string

To Make It:

1) Tear a small strip of the magazine.  The wider the strip, the wider your bead; the longer the strip, the fatter your bead).

2) Wrap tightly around the paintbrush and secure with a dab of glue.

3) Carefully slide off the brush

4) Once you have enough, you can begin threading onto your string or elastic.

5) Tie the end of the string/elastic.

Excellent! Jude is great. My kids are normally quite nervous and reluctant to join in, but they both love it, plus it keeps them stimulated doing something fun.
