Our Kids Beads Kit is perfect for encouraging creativity in your child. The bright beads are fun to play with but also beneficial developmentally in the following key areas:
Fine Motor Skills Grasping: Varying bead sizes require different types of grasping. To pick up large beads, the ‘3-jaw chuck’ grasp is needed which is similar to holding a large pencil or marker. Smaller beads encourage children to use their pincer grasp, thus strengthening the small muscles of their hands. Visual Perceptual Skills Visual Discrimination, Scanning, & Visual Memory: The child must be able to remember the beading pattern to establish the next bead to use in the sequence. Visual Motor Skills Eye-Hand coordination: Threading beads onto a string involves bilateral coordination of the child's hands, and requires their eyes and hands to work together. Cognitive Skills Planning requires decision making. What kind of necklace does the child want to make, and with what pattern? What materials will be needed and how will they be organised? Beading provides the opportunity to enhance problem-solving skills. Math Skills: What is the planned of the necklace? How many beads will be required to complete the project? How intricate is the beading pattern? Encouraging children to think through these functional math problems is a motivating way to improve academic skills. Social Skills Beading with other children or adults promote sharing and cooperation, as children choose beads and complete their projects in a group setting. Overall Developmental Benefits of Beading: ~ Improved fine motor, visual perceptual, visual motor and cognitive skills ~ Improved dressing skills (especially clothing fasteners, like buttons and zippers) ~ Improved pencil grasp and pencil control during colouring and writing activities ~ Improved visual perception and better planning often help a child to become more organised (e.g. Where did I leave my shoes? Where did I put my favourite teddy bear? Do I have everything I need to complete my homework?) ~ Beading can provide a sense of accomplishment in completing a project. ~Beading is a fantastic activity and that provides hours of fun and quiet concentration time!
