Friendship Bracelet... My Daughter's First Crochet Project

I started teaching my 6 year old daughter how to crochet this weekend. She had a bit of trouble with the needle so we started by making finger crochet chains and turning them into friendship bracelets. Once she has mastered this I guess we will try working with the needle again and then on to the single crochet stitch. Anyone have any fun beginner projects for kids that they can finish quickly??? She is already thinking big and I need to find things that will help her stay interested while she is learning the basics.


  1. How sweet! She could make these into necklaces too. Or make it wider and connect the ends for a pull on cuff bracelet, a tie on belt or dish cloth as a doily for her dresser? Have fun!

  2. This is adorable! My middle daughter is 7 and has been working hard to learn crochet. She started working on making a rectangle to create a simple little stuffed kitty. It was coming along quite nicely. But then somehow it became a circle and started resembling a tiny hat. Then she decided it was a teeny tiny purse perfect for holding sea shells. We called it freestyle crochet. Maybe not the best way to learn the basics but it did help her master single crochet and was super awesome how it became her very own design!
