A while ago we discovered that the best way to make a bead bracelet was to use a pipe cleaner rather than thread. The reason is that the beads don’t move about and fall off when little fingers let go of the thread by accident, which we have always found very frustrating. Since we discovered this, making bead bracelets has become a much more regular activity. As well as the children having a beautiful bracelet to show at the end, they have also secretly been developing some fine motor skills and a fair amount of concentration during the making :o)
