Threading with beads is ideal for developing essential fine motor skills including hand and eye co ordination, but can also be used as a way to introduce young children to a variety of mathematical concepts such as colours, patterns, shapes and counting. Threading with beads is ideal for any age.
Our threading beads come with their own indiviual carry bag designed for easy storage. There are 6 different shapes and 6 different colours in total giving you 36 vibrant coloured plastic beads. Also included are 4 threaders which are 1 metre in length and also vibrant in colour.
The beads are made from ABS plastic which is non toxic so ideal for children. The beads are approximately 2cm. The beads can be cleaned with warm soapy water and a soft cloth to avoid scratching the surface
Did you know that the act of threading helps:
- Increases concentration span
- Improves hand manipulation (which is good practice for holding a pencil)
- Can improve bilateral coordination (using both sides of the body at the same time)
- Prepares children for mathematical concepts like length, measurements, counting and patterns.
Suitable for ages 3+ Use only under adult supervision as there maybe a choking hazard
