Club Feature: Jewelery Club
We love jewelry and we have tons of it. Now we aren’t
talking about the valuable, expensive gemstones, diamonds and precious metals
kind. We’re talking about super fun costume jewelry that is colorful and funky
and a little work of art in itself.
Students will learn about the history of jewelry making, curriculum
concepts, patterning, and symmetry while sharpening their fine motor skills,
patience, and teamwork. The children will create handmade jewelry such as pins,
bracelets, necklaces, and bead animals during each club and they will be able
to bring home a finished piece of jewelry to keep and enjoy.
