Japanese Kumihimo Bracelets & Keychains

Japanese Kumihimo Bracelets & Keychains

The fifth graders seemed to love this project!  They were able to choose the colors for their Kumihimo braid as well as whether they wanted to create a bracelet or a keychain.  They were also able to pick the charms or beads to attach to the ends, or leave them plain if they preferred. The students really enjoyed creating a different type of art and we had discussions around the fact that art can be useful as much as it is something that hangs on a wall.
