Here's a fun, simple, craft for girls to create. It would be good for Kateri Tekakwitha's feast day!
My little girls love necklaces so it was a hit, but they did need help cutting the felt crosses and using the needle.
You will need:
- brown felt
- string (we used embroidery thread)
- pony beads
- needle (large enough to use on your string)
Cut out a cross shape from your felt
Thread your string through the top of your cross. Try to keep the string's entry and exit close to the edge of the cross. That helps to prevent the cross from bunching up when you add the beads.
Now add some your beads to the string on each side of the cross.
Tie a knot in the ends to create a necklace
Bl. Kateri, pray for us!!
