Create your own colorful wooden jewelry with over 150 bead and 5 cords!

To create beautiful jewelry with your bead set

  • choose the type of jewelry you would like to make – necklace, bracelet or anklet
  • measure a length of cord you will need for  the type of jewelry you have chosen – cut the cord, leaving a few extra inches that will allow you to tie a knot after you’ve finished stringing the beads – you may also want to consider making the cord long enough so that you are able to slop it on and off once the ends have been tied
  • string the beads carefully to prevent them from sliding off the opposite end of the cord – you may also choose to tie a knot at one end of the cord before stringing the beads to prevent them from sliding off – once you have finished stringing the beads, place them around your neck, wrist or ankle and tie the two ends of the cord together

Travel Kids Games

Travel Bingo by Melissa & Doug

Travel Bingo by Melissa & Doug

GREAT FOR TRAVEL!

This game must be played while traveling on the road.  Both players select a Travel Bingo board, insert matching game cards into the slot at the top of their boards, and flip open all of the doors so that the pictures on the cards are exposed.

Players look for objects pictured on their cards during their travels.  As players spot one of these objects, they point at it and shout out its name.  The first player to shout out an object’s name closed the corresponding door on the board.  The other player may not use the same object to close a door, although a similar object spotted later is acceptable.  For example, if one player spots a fire truck, the other player must find a different fire truck.  If both players spot an object simultaneously, they may both close their corresponding doors.

The game is won when a player has closed four doors in a row, wither vertically, horizontally or diagonally and shouts “BINGO”!  If both players shout “BINGO” at the same time, the player with the most doors closed is declared the winner.  If both players have the same number of doors closed, the first player to close one of their remaining doors is declared the winner.
