Set up this fun threading activity with color sorting for St. Patty’s Day.
This post is in collaboration with Pandie! All thoughts and opinions are my own.
I always love introducing different cultures and traditions to my kids through play. It makes learning extra fun and exciting.
Threading with beads according to color is a fun and amazing activity that promotes fine motor development and bilateral hand coordination for toddlers and preschoolers. This activity also helps build their thinking and problem-solving skills.
I set up a St. Patrick’s Day threading activity for Niko featuring our adorable Leprechaun with the rainbow beard. This is such a fun and easy set up using only recycled cardboard, pipe cleaners and rainbow beads.
Set up a leprechaun beard threading activity:
- Recycled cardboard
- Paint; green, yellow, orange, black, pink and white
- Black marker
- Pipe cleaners; red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple
- Beads; rainbow colors
- Hole puncher
- Draw and paint a leprechaun face minus the beard.
- Punch holes at the bottom of the leprechaun’s face.
- Insert the pipe cleaner in the hole, loop and twist the end.
- Do this to the rest of the pipe cleaners in a rainbow pattern.
How to play:
- Let your kids sort the colored beads and thread them to their matching pipe cleaners.
Hope you liked and enjoyed this activity!
