Friendship Bracelet Craft

Surprise a close friend or family member with a homemade friendship bracelet! This craft is perfect for celebrating Best Friends Day on June 8th, but can also be re-purposed year-around – there’s no such thing as too many friendship bracelets!

This activity is also great for encouraging family-time and sibling teamwork, and the finished product will be a stylish accessory. If you have materials left over at the end, make some more for your friends, family members, your favorite plush dolls, or even yourself!
