I love how simple this bracelet tutorial makes things! Among other things, I love that these bracelets are so adorable and I also love that you can MAKE the beads!
I’m not gonna lie, they are a bit time consuming, but that is fabulous to keep everyone occupied, especially while teaching! I made some and covered them with nail polish. It was a bit of a challenge to keep the middle of the bead from filling when I dipped them in a sealant. I used a bent paper clip and took it off when the sealant was almost dry, then placed it on some wax paper. It took a while, but was worth it.
I rolled some beads on a toothpick and others on the ink part of a pen. It was easier on the pen, but challenging both ways. The toothpick did make tighter rolls. I highly suggest utilizing stick glue to get the paper to stick with less of a fight!
When you make them, please share your tips and tricks! I love finding more efficient ways to make things!
All little girls love bracelets as far as I can tell thus far, from my childhood to now. I imagine they come by it naturally, given that plenty of grown women love them as well. Charm Bracelet are crazy popular. I now have multiple bracelets that once belonged to my Great Grandmother, while they weren’t charms they started my love for jewelry, specifically bracelets. I personally have so many charms that I can’t even wear them on one bracelet anymore but I still keep getting them as each one has a meaning to me. I could sit and tell you every single meaning for every single one, it just special and I only get a charm for special reasons.
Let the Little Children Come has a charm bracelet that is perfect for children! It is full of charms meant to represent the love, forgiveness, and kingdom of God while serving as a reminder when worn. I know that I would have loved to have one of these as a little girl and I know plenty of little girls now who would love to have one. They’re certainly on my Christmas list for my nieces! They are inexpensive, which is especially great since little ones tend to lose things. Plus, there is plenty of room to add more charms just like Mommy, Auntie and Grammy does!
The Enamel Charms Salvation Bracelet comes with 5 charms:
- Yellow Palace meant to remind us of Heaven.
- Stained Heart meant to remind us of sin and forgiveness.
- Red Cross to remind us of Jesus’ sacrifice
- White Heart to remind us that we are made clean when we are forgiven.
- Green Tree reminds us to grow in our relationship with Jesus.

I remember, as a child, how much I loved making stuff. It almost always had a meaning or a reason. My Granny’s would listen intently as I explained whatever I had made and why. As an adult, I understand why they would listen. Initially, I recognized how entertaining the little ones were and then I did the same thing they did, I learned to use the moments as a teaching tool. Whatever they explain, we can use as a lesson. I especially love when they take those and they go to others adding the new lesson to their explanation as their own. It is both amusing and adorable.
Let the Little Children Come has yet another amazing tool to work with the babies. These Salvation Bracelets are an easy craft to make that the little ones van not only be proud of but also learn from. These colorful little beads each represent great meaning: yellow, black, red, white and green.
The great thing is that teaching them at a young age what the colors represent can also be something they carry with them all of their lives. Imagine being an adult and in a really hard place, seeing some random object colored the same as the beads and being reminded at the perfect moment that God IS there and that HE loves you, accepts you and is there for you. I could make a hundred mile list of times where I needed that reminder and to feel that great Presence. Sometimes just knowing isn’t enough, as we let our life problems shade that knowledge, often all the way into darkness in the worst of times.
Obviously, the Sunday school lessons are many with these bracelets. However, I feel that those lessons that could be reinforced at home with them is the most valuable. One can never have too many standing opportunities to teach and remind out little children to go to God. Let the Little Children Come may be a long name for a company but it is certainly a message we will remember.
But Jesus said,
“Let the children come to me.
Don’t stop them!
For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.”
Matthew 19:14 NLT
