I bought some lovely wooden chunky beads that were perfect for this activity. I then got several pipe cleaners, made a large hook at one end and showed F how to thread the beads. He immediately wanted to try it.Fine Motor Fun with Beads and Pipe Cleaners

For once we didn’t do this activity in the kitchen – partly because I wanted to make perfectly clear to him that these beads were not for eating!

I showed him how to make his beaded pipe cleaner into a bracelet, and I just managed to snap a quick photo of me modelling it before he wanted it back so he could take all the beads off. And start again.

The next day F saw the beads on the shelf and wanted to do it again!
