These cool water filled bracelets look futuristic and retro at the

same time! Make a few and give to your friends!

Materials

  • 2 feet of clear plastic tubing with a
  • ΒΌ-inch inner diameter and
  • 3 inches of clear plastic tubing with a
  • 3/8-inch inner diameter (sold in most
  • hardware stores)
  • Ruler and scissors
  • Tiny beads or glitter

Instructions

1. To make each bracelet, first cut an 8-inch-long piece from

the 1/4-inch tubing and cut a 1-inch length from the 3/8-inch

tubing (for a fastener). Slide both ends of the 8-inch tube into

the fastener, and try on the bracelet for fit. If it's too big, take it

apart and trim it to size, remembering that it will need to slip

over her hand.

2. Remove one end of the bracelet from the fastener. Use a

finger to stopper one end while your child drops in tiny beads

or pieces of glitter -- or anything she likes that fits in the tube

and can be submerged in water.

3. When she's done, slowly fill the tube with water, leaving

several inches of air so it has room to move. Carefully slide the

free end into the fastener as far as it will go. This should create

a snug fit that won't come undone without a good tug.
