lego friendship bracelets.

Processed with VSCOcam with c2 preset

The perfect craft for your lego-obsessed kiddo! Actually mine loves making bracelets too so this really was the perfect craft. We had everything laying around at home, even the correct drill bit!

Flat LEGO bricks
Drill and 3/32″ drill bit
Embroidery thread (three colors per brick)
Scissors
safety pin or needle

Using a drill and the 3/32″ drill bit, drill 2 holes in each LEGO brick; We found it was easier to do it from the back and through the round hole because when we did it through the front the lego broke.

Cut embroidery thread in a few different colors to one length.  Put all of the colors together and fold them in half. Thread the loop through one of the holes.Pull the loose strands through the loop you have formed once pulling part of the thread through the hole. I used the a safety pin and the top of a needle to help push the thread through the hole because the hole was kind of small. Pull the thread tight. I had milo hold the lego while I braided the thread. Tie knots at the end and you are done!

I found the original idea here.
