    Heart Bracelet

    To make this bracelet for yourself or a friend, you will need: a strip of colored paper, 1″ (2.5 cm) wide and 8 1/2″ (21.5 cm) long; scissors; markers, crayons, or glue and glitter; and tape.

    1. Fold the paper in half (long ends together), then fold it in half two more times. Crease each fold well.

    2. With an older person’s help, cut a heart shape into the folded paper (see illustration). Be sure to leave the hearts connected at both side edges.

    3. Unfold the strip of hearts and decorate one side of the paper by coloring designs or gluing on glitter.

    4. Wrap the bracelet around your wrist or the wrist of a friend; tape the ends together.
