Backpack Key Chains

Backpack Keychain (8)

Travis is kitted out with notebooks and textbooks, but he won’t be completely back-to-school ready until his backpack has some homemade bling! We used up the last of a pack of craft spools for this easy DIY version.

First up was painting the spools and Travis chose red.

I painted a second set in a marbled red and yellow.

You’ll want to use acrylic paints so that the first rainy day doesn’t spoil your child’s craft. But since little sister Veronika wanted to get involved, I gave her some washable paints to smear around next to us.

Once the spools dry, thread onto craft laces. Travis chose blue for his.

And of course you’re sneaking in fine motor skills when your child threads the spools onto the lace.

We alternated these with wooden beads, then added a clasp at the top and knotted the lace.

Backpack? Check. COVID-19 hand sanitizer? Check. Keychain? Check. He’s ready.
