Simple threading activity for kids

Materials Needed:

  • several Halloween rings in a variety of colors (and styles if you have them- bats, spiders, etc.)
  • a glowstick necklace (there are tons in the Target $1 aisle right now!)
  • masking tape

How to make an awesome DIY threading necklace

  1. Tape one end of the glowstick to a flat surface like a table. This will ensure that it doesn’t move while little ones are adding the rings.
  2. Start adding the rings onto the glowstick. Talk about the colors, shapes, and patterns your child is making while you create!
  3. Once finished, close the glowstick necklace, turn on your favorite Halloween tunes, and dance around while moving your Halloween Ring Shaker. You can dance with it around your neck or while holding it in your hand!
