Fine Motor Home Therapy Activity

25 Feb

A quick, fun & easy fine motor activity for home is simply threading beads onto craft wires/pipe cleaners (whatever you choose to call them). We stood the wires in the holes of a basic salt shaker (99¢ at Target) and then threaded the beads from the top. You wouldn’t have to use the salt shaker, though. Simply crimp one end of the wire so the beads don’t fall off, and thread to your heart’s content. You can bend the finished product into bracelets, or you can simply take the beads back off and start again. We did this at Christmas and shaped the beaded wires into teardrop shapes for colorful, homemade ornaments.

Happy beading!
