Red, green, gold and black are colors that represent Jamaican Rastafarians. Beads in those colors as well as cowry shells often adorn Rasta jewelry. In this simplified activity, your young child can make her own Rasta-style necklace using beads and any type of shell (cowry shells are available for purchase online). Beads are great counting manipulatives and work youngsters’ fine motor skills. This project is a fun lesson in colour patterns, and a great way to celebrate a part of Black culture, too.
