This morning a child asked me if I could braid her hair. I decided to add some beads.
As I braided her hair I noticed this child sorting the beads out into individual colors. I asked her to pick out the colors she wanted in her hair."I like the color purple," she said. As she peered in the mirror she smiled. 😃 She then found a feather and asked to put it in her hair.
This child is creating a necklace with her beads. This peaked the interest of many other children who also came to make necklaces.
Creating with beads brings out various skills from:
➡️Sorting different colors
➡️Working on a child's fine motor skills
➡️Using a material in different ways
