A creative activity for kids that exercises fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and pattern recognition
What you’ll need
– construction paper
– a bobby pin
– hole puncher
Prepare the supplies. Cut out different coloured flower shapes and punch a hole through the middle of each. Tie a bobby pin to the end of the string so that your child can easily sew through the accessories. Tie a cherrio to the end of the string to block the accessories from falling off.
Teach your child the pattern for making their necklace. “Flower, cherrio, straw, cherrio…..flower, cherrio, straw, cherrio…..”
Have them say it as they string each part.
And that’s it!
It’s a nice snack too because they will end up sneaking some cherrios in between!
