A couple of weeks ago, we visited a farmers market on our travels. I’ll be honest, as full-time travelers this can be a bit of a gamble. We love to check them out when we are in an area before we hit local grocery stores just in case there are some great produce buys. Locally grown and fresh is always better than store-bought in my opinion.

Our daughters happen to be walking around with us and saw some handmade jewelry items at one of the booths. My oldest daughter is not a fan of anything girly, but she noticed some paracord bracelets and was completely smitten. She found her favorite color and was in love.

A couple of months ago we were near some other full-time homeschoolers and they took my kids in for the 6 weeks I was recovering from surgery. Through them, my daughter found a love of crafting and creating. She remembered a loom set she had and they all immediately went to work. Since then she has been making potholders on her loom for everyone she can think of in our family.

So when I found a link for how to make paracord bracelets, she was ecstatic! Then my other daughter came over and asked about any patterns she might like to make and that got us on a search that turned up some very creative and interesting bracelets. Of course, I had to put them in a list for you all. With cooler weather on its way, these are the perfect indoor activity for all kids – even boys! 

Whether they are making for friends or family, kids will have fun looking through these DIY bracelet options.
