How We Did It
As I started gathering the materials, my two-year-old V had fun sorting the beads by color and type. Along with sorting, this is also the perfect activity for talking about colors. V loves to do this; sorting is a popular pastime in this house!
Now the fun part: Have your kiddos bead the pipe cleaners to make their bracelets! This activity also works on fine motor skills too: fitting the beads on the pipe cleaners.
When V got about 3/4 of the way up the pipe cleaner, I took the end of the pipe cleaner through the hole to latch them together and wove the excess pip cleaner through the last bead.
