- felt or foam shapes
- pipe cleaners (or string)
One of my son’s favorite things to do is string beads, or shapes onto string. We chose pipe cleaners today. This sensorial DIY Montessori work is great for fine motor refinement, concentration, small muscle control, and hand-eye coordination. I couldn’t cut shapes fast enough to keep up with my little one!
Here are a few other DIY stringing activities to try at home:
