Making jewelry as a handicraft goes well with a literature study. The Little House on the Prairie Series is one of my favorites and we are on our second go around reading them in our home. I included many handicrafts to choose from in my unit study, Prairie Life. It follows the first book in the series, Little House in the Big Woods. I created these jewelry pieces to wear at homeschool conventions I was speaking at. Everyone loved them, so I wanted to share how I made them with you.
This is a wonderful activity to do with the book or any in the series. Gather together with several children to do as a keepsake craft or make a jewelry kit to give as gifts along with a book.
Supplies you will need:
The Little House literature series is one of my all-time favorites. It was great fun creating these jewelry pieces and I hope you can find a delightful way to enjoy making them with your children.
If you are reading a series that is loved by your children, create a multiple charm necklace that you can add to as you read each book in the series. A precious memory of time spent together reading aloud.
Prairie Life is a great addition as you spend time on the prairie. I wrote it for families to enjoy their time reading aloud together and do activities that teach a new skill and learn some old ones.
Prairie Life is a wonderful way to spend some time on the prairie together.
