DIY STEM Solar System Bracelet (A Great Stocking Stuffer)
The DIY Solar System Bracelet kit arrives in a cute little box. Each kit comes with a rhinestone sun, beads representing each planet (Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune), a metallic gold bead for the Ceres asteroid belt, black beads representing space, fishing line, clasps and crimps and decorative star beads.
To do the project, you’ll need about 15 minutes and pliers.
The directions are clear and easy to follow.
If your child is studying space at school, this will make a great visual reminder of the planets. (Along with the memory mnemonic: “My Very Excellent Mother Just Served Us Noodles”.)
Doesn’t the finished solar system bracelet look awesome!?
