We hope this kids craft idea will attract your attention and you'll try to make this lovely bracelet, which can be a cute gift for your daughter, or her friends.

To make it, we'll need:

1. Smooth surface: for example, a large mirror or glass, a lacquered table.
2. Water.
3. Polymeric plastic of various colors: white, brown, orange, green.
4. A big needle — it's easy to work with it.
5. A small mirror or a piece of glass about 5 x 5 cm
6. A blade
8. Pliers
9. All-metal pins
10.Foil
11.Transparent glue
11.Fittings: a chain of silver color, a fastener.
Before working we moisten the hands in water, so that the plastic shouldn't stick to them.

Model a carrot.

We take an orange lump of plastic, roll up a ball out of it, then shape it in the form of a cone and bend a bit. Then with the fingernails we make small holes on the plastic cone like the natural carrots have [if you don't want to use your fingernails, you may use, e,g. a drinking straw, or something else].

We take a green lump of plastic, roll up a «sausage» and bend it in two, then bend it again. So, we've made the carrot leaves. Now we are to stick them to the carrot.

And now we model cakes.

We take a lump of brown plastic, roll a ball out of it. Then we put it on the moistened with water surface [so that the plastic shouldn't cling to it] and flatten it with a small mirror. As a result, we have a pancake. To make the pancakes of the same size, we cut a triangle out of a chocolate wrapper, put it to the pancake and with a blade cut a triangle on the plastic. For one cake 2 triangles of brown color and 3 thinner white ones are needed. We first put 2 brown triangles and in the middle — a white one.

We clutch the workpiece between the fingers of the left hand, and with the needle in the right hand we start pecking small holes at the brown layer. We should do it carefully, not pressing much. Besides, we should hold the workpiece still more carefully not to spoil the cake form. Before doing that, one can put the cake into the fridge for 10 minutes to cool it, so that it may harden and shouldn't lose its form; after that one can peck. On doing that, we stick the left two white pieces on the sides. Then we make one more white plastic cookie of the same thickness as the other white pieces and put on it a cake with its side part, so that it should stick to it. We cut off what isn't needed with a blade.

We take a white lump, roll up a «sausage», and flatten it with fingernails or a tube making the texture of cream. Stick it to the cake. Take one more small piece, flatten it and stick it on the middle of the cake. After that we make a tiny carrot and fasten it on that piece. The cake is ready.

We make a roll.

We take a brown lump, roll up a «sausage» and flatten it with a small mirror making a long flat cake. Cut out a long rectangle with the blade. Do the same with the white lump and stick them together. Make a roll.

We stroke the sides with fingernails and start pecking at the brown layer with a needle (you remember to put the workpiece into the fridge for 10 minutes before pecking). On the top we make a piece of cream and fasten a mini-carrot. The roll is ready.

We take a pin and snap off its sharp part [half of the pin] with pliers. Clutch the eyelet with pliers, take the cake with the fingers and insert the pin into it. Be careful so that the pin point shouldn't get outside.

Heat the oven [the temperature is written on the plastic wrapper]. Put the foil on the griddle, our workpieces on it and place everything into the oven. The time is on the wrapper — usually it's about 5 minutes. When everything has got cold, take out the pin with the pliers, cover it with glue a little and insert it back. Now the parts of our bracelet will be fastened very firmly. Hook up a fastener onto the chain of the needed length and fasten our details on the chain on the equal space from each other.
