My preschool students as well as my boys at home can sit and make bead  bracelets for a long time–yes, boys do enjoy this also! And who says you can’t turn these bracelets into some super cool pumpkins which is what we did!  This activity worked on patterning, fine motor, color recognition, following directions and attending to an activity!! Jewelry at it’s finest:)

To Do: Gather some beads and a pipe cleaner and line the pipe cleaner with the beads. When it is the right size, fit it to your child, twist the ends closed and add a brown (or any color) stem to the top by adding a few extra beads!
