Friendship Bracelets

I love the idea of involving our kids in making gifts for the shoeboxes!

One idea I have shared before is that tweens and teens can easily make friendship bracelets. Perhaps the child can make 2 matching ones.. one for the child, and one for themselves and when they wear their bracelet they can remember to pray for the shoebox recipient!

It would be fun to take a picture of your child wearing one of them, and holding the other, so that the child will see that they have matching bracelets.

There are so many different styles of friendship bracelets out there... kits to buy... and many styles. If you have never made them there are GREAT instructions with pictures for one type of friendship bracelet at


  1. I love this idea! I may adapt it to my younger children and make simple matching beaded bracelets.

  2. That is a delightful idea! I know it will be a blessing both for your children and the children who receive the bracelets!!! God bless you!
