So you want to craft with your toddler and you’d like to make something Christmassy.
Here is a simple decoration that encourages fine motor skills and helps to perfect the pincer grasp.
They look pretty too.
What we used
(You should stay next to your little one and make sure she doesn’t try to put the beads in her mouth)
What we did
I bent one end of the pipe cleaner to stop the beads falling off as they slid on.
Then my little one threaded the beads on.
When he was happy that there were enough beads
I bent the bottom up and tucked it in to hide the sharp ends like this…
Next i made the top into a loop for hanging.
Then a proud little boy hung them on the tree.
