Have you ever experimented with polymer clay? In high school, my girlfriends and I would geek out on a Saturday night and make hippie flower bead necklaces. Fast forward to motherhood, and I’m geeking out with my five-year-old daughter and her friend. A little impromptu playdate turned into a special crafty afternoon. I showed these sweet peas how to make kids’ friendship necklaces, specially made with their monogram.

Kids’ Friendship Necklaces | Process
First, we took white, red, and magenta polymer clay and warmed it up in our hands. If you’ve never worked with polymer clay, it’s really stiff and hard for young kids to mold. Then, we rolled out the clay and stamped out a heart. Next, we rolled out a solid color and stamped out the first letter of our names. Finally, we laid the letter on top of the heart and gently rolled it flat and poked a hole in the top. Bake the final product at 250° F/ 121° C, for 10 minutes.

After the heart is baked, take some colorful hemp string and thread the heart with some homemade pom poms, and large wooden beads. Tie the ends, then share and wear with your friends!
Nothing says, “friendship” like spending an afternoon together creating a sweet craft. These necklaces are fun for all ages to make and share.
