We had a lot of fun this past summer with the Jr. Ranger programs at Farragut. In fact, we’re still looking for fun programs for next year!
I love to do crafts and came across instructions to make friendship bracelets and survival bracelets. They look like a lot of fun so I headed to the big box store for supplies.
These survival bracelets will go well with a “stay found” program that Mark will be putting together.
We’ve found some instructions that I think will be easy and fast enough for kids. Just to make sure, we had some fun making our own survival bracelets.
First you have to measure the paracord:
Next, burn the ends so they don’t come unraveled (this is where the parents will help out):
Tie the cord to the plastic clip and tape it down to keep it from moving around:
Then start tying square knots (also known as the cobra knot):
Before long, you have a really cute bracelet!
I think this will be a fun Jr. Ranger program.
