Jumbo Lacing Beads introduce toddlers to stringing and so much more. While playing with the beads children encounter a variety of colors, shapes, and textures. Naturally this leads to exploring how the beads are alike and different. All are wood and large. While some share additional characteristics, others do not.
Beads are ideal for intergenerational play. Simply playing a game with the beads builds social skills. Rolling beads back and forth is not only simple. It is both fun and functional. Remembering to share the words that describe the attributes of each bead enriches both language and intellectual skills. Furthermore stringing develops tactile awareness, eye-hand coordination, and fine motor skills. Beads are 1 1/2″ diameter x 2″L; cord measures 28″L.
