Beads and pins
13 December 10
The girls have loved being back home and have been asking to do a lot of craft this week. Today I pulled out the old favourite — playing with pins — but added our collection of random beads to see what the girls would create.
We started with our growing collection of polystyrene blocks. (I never throw away the styrofoam from anything anymore!) I have a collection of pearl-headed pins that I have bought specifically for sewing projects, but they live permanently in the girls’ craft cupboard. And then I brought out the beads.
If you haven’t yet tried this simple activity with your pre-schoolers, I’d highly recommend it. Of all the crafty things we could get up to, this is one of the simplest and yet the most engaging for my girls.
