Beading

If you are looking for a way to strengthen hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills, take time this weekend to do some beading with your child!  I started beading with LARGE wooden beads when Elly was 2 and she has slowly worked her way up to pony bead size.  It takes a lot of concentration and she can only work for short periods of time (5-6 min) before needing a break – but she is now able to make a bracelet on her own – YEAH!!!!  Noodles on pipe cleaners or shoe laces are an inexpensive alternative if you don’t have beads at home!
