Do you remember making “friendship bracelets” when you were younger? Do you remember having them wrapped around your wrist and bursting with pride? I remember having so many on my wrist, and always wanting more 😉
Friendship bracelets originated in Central America years ago; the knotting design was adapted from macrame, which is a form of knotting rather than weaving or knitting. These bracelets were specially handmade to be given to one friend from another to symbolize their friendship! Sometimes best friends would have matching bracelets to represent that they are the two peas in a pod 😉 There are so many different varying patterns, and sometimes beads are added to make the bracelets extra special!
There are some people in life that make you laugh a little louder, smile a little bigger, and live just a little bit better; these people are your friends!
Friendship bracelets come in all sorts of different colours too, and each colour represents something different! Here is a list of different colours with their meanings:
PINK = kind
RED = honest
ORANGE = energetic
YELLOW = cheerful
GREEN = responsible
BLUE = loyal
BLACK = strong
I love love love when you combine colours to make a truly special friendship bracelet that represents your friend! I loved making these as a child, and started making them with my littlest! It has been loads of fun!!! It definitely is a great way to pass the day, especially when you want to stay inside away from the smokey air we have been exposed to! Great activity 🙂
Love love love, LC
