This is a super simple activity
You will need:
There’s lots of difference facets to this seemingly simple activity. First of all there’s colour sorting and counting. Arlo was very selective about which colours he wanted to use.
Then there’s the developing dexterity and making patterns. You can use pens and paper to plan your bracelet pattern ahead.
Then the best bit is the gifting of the finished bracelets. Arlo was extremely proud of his finished creations.
Then there’s the friendship part…. Arlo is too little to write his own letters but we packed up a little set of beads and pipe cleaners and sent them to our friends in the post last week.
Mum tip – I always make sure I supervise Arlo with beads, and count exactly how many we have before setting up and after an activity like this.
