Beaded Keyring

This is a simple, fun beading craft project that you can do with the younger kids, 4+. Be careful as it does use a piece of wire which is very pokey. An adult will be required to help the younger kids finish off the end as they may find it hard to make the bend to stop the beads falling off.
