A friendship bracelet can last up to 6 months in your wrist and it is easy to make it. Usually the bracelet that is tied to your friendís wrist falls off by itself. For making the friendship bracelet you need to buy an embroidery thread at any sewing stores or a crafts stores. Choose a few colors of thread. Take one color of the thread and wrap it around your wrist 3 times and also leave some length without wrapping. Now you get the length of the thread needed for the friendship bracelet. Now cut the other color threads also to the same length. Now tie a knot at the top of the cut strings. Now cross the left string over to the right string like you are making number four. Now the first string should be brought under the opening in the numeral four and tighten it to make a knot. Repeat these steps with the other strings also. Complete all the rows of strings like this. Now you have a friendship bracelet for your wrist.
There are many ways to create your gift basket that would surprise the receiver. You need not look for the traditional gift basket. It could even be a clay pot that holds the gifts in it. You can also use the plastic containers, buckets, and clay pots as a container for the gifts. You can fill the bottom of the basket with tissue paper so that the gifts are spread out in the basket.
There are many types of gifts that you can pack in the gift basket. If you know that the person likes music, you can include CDs, Tapes, Music Books, Music Videos, and music instruments in the basket. To give a relaxing moment during a bath, you can even include towels, essential oils, bath oils, bath salts, sponges, and brushes. Candles of all shapes and sizes are available in the market. Scented candles are a good gift that you can add to the gift basket. There are also other types of gifts like kitchen accessories, gardening accessories, homemade goodies, etc that can be used as gifts.
Playing with goo is that the kids like. Kids who learn to eat by themselves are those who are very much interested in playing with goo. It is disgusting for most of the adults, but kids would love to play with it much. So it is better to make goo at home in the color the kids like and then give it to them for playing.
It is very easy to make goo at home. All you need is a bowl, flour, food coloring and water. Put the required quantity of flour in a bowl and then add water and food coloring to it. Mix them well. It is better to add water little by little while making goo. This would help you to have thick goo. If by mistake you have added more water, then you have to add some flour to maintain the thickness of the goo. There are many food colors available in the market. You can leave the option of selecting the colors to your kids. Instead of flour you can also use corn starch in preparing the goo.
Nothing can equal the way that you relax in your hammock with a cup of tea or some other drink. You can make hammock on your own with the materials that you find at home without even buying one. After you make such a hammock you will find that you have done it at a fraction of a cost that you would have spent if you have bought it. The materials that are required to make hammock are the rag like shirts or sheets, two rods or sticks, and a crochet. The crochet is optional. Even without it you can make the hammock. You can have to make around 14 chains of rags each of eight feet length. These crocheted chains have to be tied to the rod or the stick which is of 4 feet length. Space them properly so that you can tie the 14 chains to it. Then with these lengths of the rags you have to create a mesh like pattern until you reach the end. Then tie the other end to the other rod or stick. Make sure that the rod of the stick can withstand the weight of two persons. Now tie the hammock you created to the trees nearby and start relaxing in them.
