Rainbow Beads for Beads of Courage Dream Bead Requests

We all received an email from Ashley at Beads of Courage
informing us that there were Dream Bead Requests.
I clicked on the link, and I searched the requests.
Two caught my eye because they were for rainbow beads for a 
4 year old child and an 8 year old child.
I thought, "What the heck," and I threw caution to the wind.
It was fun, but far more challenging than I ever imagined it could be.
How could a beautiful rainbow be difficult to make?
Well, let me tell you!
Here's the batch of beads I sent off to BOC today,
yes, they were all attempts, except for two that I thought were okay.
All kinds, as you can see.
I'm not crazy about these rainbows, but maybe a child will call them tee-pees?

Now, I really liked these, but I felt they were too abstract for a 4 year old and 8 year old who wanted rainbow beads.

These were my favorite style, but as you can see, they weren't the best.
These are the backs of the same beads!

I thought these were my best ones. 
I hope the children like their beads.
It was my privilege to be a part of this program!
You go, kids!!!
We are rooting for all of you!

Hi, Hannah, I don't think so. They will probably take the best ones for the kids for their strings of beads like yours!!! Congratulations on your Purple Heart!
