Next time you buy a pair of kids' shoes, keep the elastic string that keeps them together - don't throw it away! Just untie the knot and you've got a wonderful piece of craft string for bracelets and things. I've noticed that they are thicker/tougher than regular craft elastic. I've started saving them to make my daughter little bracelets. :)
