One of our all time favorite toys is our bucket of wooden beads. You will be amazed at the hours of learning fun your child will have with this simple toy.
What does it do: Stringing beads is an excellent way to tune your child's fine motor skills. This activity promotes hand-eye cordination, while building sorting, matching, and color recognition skills. We even use these to practice counting.
For my younger children, we use a wooden dowel rod instead of the shoelaces. This allows for easier control for children who are trying to master the skill.
Where can I get one: We got ours from Different Roads to Learning, but you can find them at most retailers. A container of 100 beads costs around $25.00.
