All you need is string (cord, hemp, yarn, ribbon...anything you have on hand) and some fun beads. Ruthie is my, um, spirited child. So I used the ol' highchair to keep her in one spot and contain some of the chaos, or else I would be finding beads around the house from now until the end of time.
She wears hers everywhere - her "gussets"she calls them - and rakes in the compliments. :)
(the boy loves them too. we save the black white and navy beads for him)
