If crewel and embroidery seems too difficult for your seven-year-old son and if he is a naughty sort, who is not patient enough to learn a particular craft, which might entail diligence and perseverance, the easiest way to get him interested is by letting him try his hands on the stuff, which might be to his liking.
Imposing your thoughts and ideas on him would be a futile attempt, as he might not endorse them. Beads are easily available in most of the gift stores and the art of beading together vibrant colored and well-synchronized studs does not require extensive training or supervision. Though its unsafe to let kids meddle with small sized beads as they might end up swallowing them, adolescents and teenagers can try their hands at making some really artistic bead bracelets, key chains and hatbands. Alphabet Beads are a hot favorite and they go down well with kids of all age groups. They are trendy and easy to make and inexpensive too unless rare varieties of beads are used to prepare the string.
The beads should be chosen in keeping with the nature of the craft project, the aptitude, taste and preferences of the beadier and the time allotted. You have a myriad of beads to select from ranging from wood, blown glass, stone, porcelain, pewter components and ceramics. Rounded, rectangular, triangular, heart and diamond shaped are the most sought after ones but a whole range of other shapes are also available.
Alphabet beads are arranged sequentially in such a way, so as to pertain to the name of the person it is being gifted to. Primarily used for making bracelets and similar accessories, which have the name of the person concerned, they make fine holiday showers, which are simple yet, fashionable.
