Print these paper bead templates on thicker paper and laminate for something you can use over and over again in your classroom.
A great resource to teach children about different cultures, art, world history, recycling and upcycling.
One template is a right triangle of 2 inches at the widest end, 7 inches long and has 6 templates per 8.5 by 11 inch page.
The second template is an isosceles triangle of 2 inches at the widest end, 7 inches long and has 7 templates per 8.5 x 11 inch page.
You can use recycled paper to create the templates for kids to use. Create beads from scrap paper, colored paper, old magazines and newspapers. You can use anything round and larger than the paper to wrap the bead.
