Thanksgiving Bracelet

Making the Thanksgiving Bracelet using a pipe cleaner and pony beads. Blue for ocean, white for sails of the ship, black for the hard times the first winter when so many died, crystal for the friendship of the Indians who helped them, green for the corn that Squanto showed them how to plant, yellow-corn, red-berries, brown-turkey for the feast. You could add or change the colors to fit your story if you like.

Found on a Yahoo group to use.
