Question: What do you get when you combine BEADS and PRETEENS?
Answer: IN BEAD*TWEEN
This fall my library offered a series of programs for preteens (tweens) to explore their creative side by making a box and a bracelet. The IN BEAD*TWEEN series was for the in between-aged set in 5th to 8th grades.
The crafty beaders learned to make small origami boxes by repurposing catalog covers, a skill which just might come in handy for holiday gifts. The beautiful pink bracelets made in October were both fun to make and to wear. As you get ready for the holidays, you might want to just bead it too!
