It has a bead at the top (I used a heart bead), through which the plastic lacing or ribbon is tied off (put the safety pin through it, too). Then 7 pony beads are laced on (with the lacing ends crossed through the middle of the pony bead).
Leave an inch or two of space and tie the lacing in a knot (square, of course). Tie on a pony bead at each end for decoration (one is silver and the other gold..).
Then, the girls, as they do a good turn for the day, can slide a bead down. Do this each day for a week, and then start sliding the beads up again the next week.
