wordless bracelet

Friday: Wordless Bracelet
Bible Lesson: Fishers of Men: elementary, preschool, teen
Memory Verse: Matthew 4:19
Age Groups:
  • elementary
  • preschool
  • teens
Supplies Needed:
  • beads in the five Wordless Book colors (black, red, white, yellow, green)
  • fishing line, leather cord, or some other bracelet material
  • clear beads (optional)
String the five colored beads onto the bracelet in order, knotting at each end to prevent them from sliding around too much (though you can leave a little slack so that there can be a small gap between the beads that have been explained and the ones that remain). (If you are using fishing line, the line must go through the bead twice, wrapping around, so that the knot ties together two strands. Otherwise, the knot could slip through the beads. With leather cord, this is unnecessary, since the knot is too large for the hole.)
Clear beads can be used to make the bracelet size adjustable, or you can just tie it at a reasonable size.
While you make the craft, discuss the meaning of each of the five colors and how the bracelet can be used to share the good news with friends.
