This necklace/bracelets set was made for the little one, but I've got a set in the works for myself. They're really simple, quick and incredibly cute. This could even make for a fun rainy-day craft for older kids (5+), boys included. I think everyone would enjoy making these. I found the tutorial here. The bag of rope was only a few dollars at Home Depot and the acrylic paints I used are only 50 cents or so per color.
