We had a girls dress-up tea party at our house this week and they had so much fun dressing up!  We needed the perfect accessory, edible bracelets!  I was inspired to make these adorable jellybean bracelets after reading the tutorial by Mrs D Lightful, love her blog!  She used stretchy string to thread her bracelets but we just used plain string, the kids absolutely loved them!

Supplies needed to make the Jellybean Bracelets:

  • Thicker needle (I used a basting needle from quilting.  Loved it’s “T” head, it made threading so much easier!).
  • Thin Regular sewing needle
  • Thread – I used four strands for strength
  • Jellybeans!!!

.

How to make these party favors:

Using the thicker needle, poke a hole through, then thread the thinner needle through the hole.  We had a little bowl of water and a rag to rinse our needles off as we worked.  They would get gummed up from the sugary sweetness.  The kids loved their bracelets!

.

Learning Opportunities with the jellybean bracelets:

  • Color recognition – maybe make a shade scale.  Which is the darkest red, the brightest red, the palest pink?
  • Pattern Recognition and creation as you pick and predict what color should come next.
  • Taste test:  Which is the sweetest flavor?  The saltiest one?  The most sour?
  • Take a sweet jelly bean, which part of your tongue can you taste it the best?
