Melissa & Doug Deluxe Wooden Lacing Beads Educational Activity Ages 3+
Jumbo Fun with First Lacing Beads
This first beading set contains 27 beautifully crafted jumbo wooden lacing beads in multiple shapes and bright colors and patterns. What a great way to learn and practice lacing, counting, sorting, and more! The approximately 1.5-inch beads include cubes, cylinders, stars, and circles and feature different patterns and numbers. They are easy for kids three and up to grasp and hold, stack and knock down, and to arrange and rearrange. Two thick, extra-long laces are simple for little hands to thread through the large holes in the beads, offering hours of play. Beading encourages an artistic flair while also helping kids develop important physical and cognitive skills. Lacing helps promote manual dexterity, hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills, concentration, problem solving, and creative expression. This wide variety of beads also promotes color and shape recognition and can be used to help teach sequencing, patterning, sorting, counting, and more. All of the pieces store neatly in a sturdy wooden crate.
