Recycled Cardboard Best Friend Necklaces

BFFmainED

I’m so lucky that my two girls really are best friends (well, most of the time!) They loved making these recycled cardboard best friend necklaces together. Once they were done, they wore them everywhere to show off their “BFF” love for each other. Hope the little ones in your life enjoy them as much as we did!
