Free Instructions: Rainbow Keyring

A great colourful little project to make with little beaders! This may be too tricky for small hands to do independently. But we find a team effort is fun! Little beaders can choose the colours, count out the beads ready, thread the beads and 'supervise' their keyring coming together! Scissors and beads to be used only under adult supervision. Not suitable for children under 3

Materials Needed: 25 Pony beads, we used rainbow colours from our Pony beads mix ( PLCN), 1 metre of cotton covered elastic ( EL, 1 swivel clip (SVS)


Tools Needed: A beading matt will help stop escapee beads! (BMT2), and a sharp pair of scissors (SCIMX).

Instructions
