DIY Cheap and Easy Climbing Knot Friendship Bracelet Tutorial from Free People. You could either tie the bracelet shut or add magnetic clasps like Johnie Gall did. She chose the figure 8 knot (a climbing knot) to symbolize courage and keeping her girlfriend safe and strong. These are definitely doable for older kids.

DIY Straw and Beads Necklace Tutorial from Honest to Nod. Favorite gift to give 4-6 year olds?
