Sugar Aunts: Rainbow Bead Bracelets DIY Dress Up Accessory

Rainbow Bead Bracelets DIY Dress Up Accessory

Do your kids dress up in play clothes as much as mine do?  Any given day we've got knights, princesses, dancing stars, ninjas, superheroes, doctors, fancy ladies...the list of pretend play scenes go on and on!  And it is SO much fun to watch the scenes develop.  Oh yeah, there are fights and arguments that happen when someone wants to be the "star".  And a lot of times the 6 year old, 4 year old, and 2 year old are just running around in total mishmash of costumes.  (Or totally naked in the 2 year olds case!)  But it is so much fun to see what character comes up from the playroom. 

These Rainbow Bead Bracelets are the perfect dress up accessories.  They started out as our Fine Motor Rainbow Pipe Cleaner craft and easily turned into colorful bracelets.

Fine motor craft with beads and pipe cleaners to make these rainbow bracelets.

Rainbow Bead Bracelets

Beading on pipe cleaners is a great fine motor activity for toddlers.
Beading the bracelets is a great fine motor activity that even toddlers can do.  Love those chubby little knuckles!

When we were done with our rainbow craft and pretend play, we just pulled them out of the Styrofoam and twisted the arches into bracelets.  Done!

Bead bracelets made with rainbow colors

There's a color for everyone!  These bracelets are coming in handy for lots of dress-up fun!
