More hands-on activities and this time it’s stringing of beads!
It’s obvious that this activity is to practise fine motor skills so I don’t think any elaboration is needed. 🙂
This activity is not suitable for tots still mouthing items.
*Activity first conducted on 31 Oct 2010*
All you need for this activity are:
- some beads
- a short piece of yarn
- a toothpick
- masking tape
- Trim off the sharp points of the toothpick.
- Wrap a small piece of masking tape around one of the trimmed points.
- Wrap a small piece of masking tape around the yarn and the other point of the toothpick to hold them together (as shown above).
- If you like, you can tie a knot at the end of the string and let your toddler string the beads up. (Alicia doesn’t like the knot, so she’d just string the bead then remove it from the string and ask for the next bead.)
