- Paper (I used two sheets of copy paper taped together)
- Pipe cleaners cut in half
Besides helping with counting, this activity also strengthens fine motor skills as little ones work hard to grasp the beads and string them on the pipe cleaner.
Little C didn’t quite get the concept behind the activity, but she did enjoy putting beads on the pipe cleaner. This kept her quite busy, as you can see by the concentrated look on her face.
