Using beads to make jewelry is not only fun but helps teach color recognition, language and fine motor skills.
I have been wanting to introduce colors and words to Mia more, but in fun ways. So I decided to make a beaded necklace with her with the largest beads I could find.
I looped the yarn at the end by making a knot several times and a bow since the beads hole are so big.
We played with the beads for a while looking at the pretty colors. Mia loved rolling the beads all around the dish.
Please get the largest beads you can find and stay real close to your toddler they are really fast and may want to stick the beads in their mouth. Small enough beads are a choking hazard.
We picked our favorite beads and put them along our yarn to make a necklace
Putting the beads on the yarn helps our little ones with their fine motor skills.
Tie the two ends together once you have put all of your beads on and your little one has a bead necklace she will love to wear.
As you can see Mia loves her necklace : )
