Activity: Circle Necklace from Hands on As We Grow blog 

The example on the blog shows putting circles in rainbow color order, but mine were a little more free form. I was just focused on size, so I put out circles of various sizes and colors (they were actually extras from previous crafts). I then instructed the children to pick out circles, arrange them by size smallest to largest, then punch a hole through them and string them onto yarn to make their necklaces. The kids seemed to enjoy the process of making the necklace, especially when they got to use the hole punches (which take quite a bit of strength for a preschooler).
