Eileen's Camp Crafts Original
JEWISH BEADIE CRAFTS!
Bible and Jewish Holiday Symbols.


Beadie animals, critters whatever you call them, are a great craft. You weave large hole beads called pony beads into key chains, light pulls, backpack zipper pulls etc. (See my Beadie Animal Page for more ideas, tips, supplies, books and links.)

This craze is probably the hottest craft for kids in years. There are 100s of free patterns on the web and probably 50 books in the stores. The craft is suitable for children 8 and up. Younger children (those that know not to put beads in their mouth etc.) can help an adult make an animal.

Teens use smaller beads either seed/Indian beads or other small beads to make earrings, necklaces, shoe decorations and more. Or the new mini pony beads to make slightly smaller projects and therefore cut the weight on their school bags.

It is a rare craft where boys and girls enjoy it equally. (Lots of cool boys patterns not just sweet girl projects like some crafts.)

BUT NO ONE MADE ANY JEWISH ONES!
(BELIEVE ME I HAVE LOOKED.)

SO.... My children and I started our own collection of beadie projects for Jewish kids. They will hopefully work as a project for some experienced beadie classes and as a starting point for others more talented then we are. Let us know what you think. We would love to hear any suggestions for future projects.

First suggestion ( besides make more) was for me to remind everyone that many of these symbols can be used for many religions - ten commandments, candles etc.


Scroll down for a small picture of all of my designs. But don't forget I do have larger pictures AND directions on other pages. The number of large pictures on the original instructions page was making the down load time too long for many of you. I have now divided the page into multiple pages. I hope this helps!

    Do not forget to hit reload every time you come to a page on my site as I update frequently and most computer networks save old copies of a site to "help" you.
