Finding activities can be both time consuming and expensive. I stopped by our local dollar store and was surprised and pleased with the selection of activities they offered. Everything was $1 a piece

“To understand is to perceive patterns.” Isaiah Berlin
Stringing beads promotes a lot of developmental benefits to children including: -fine motor skills: helps grasping -cognitive skills: they have to think about the type and style of necklace/bracelet they will make. -visual perception: remembering and following a pattern -hand/eye coordination: requires the hands and the eyes to work in sync.
Such a fun, inexpensive activity!
