Threading is deceptively simple. Find some beads, buttons or bobbins, or lace up a shoe or threading toy.
But take a moment to consider the skills required.
- Pincer and/or tripod grip to hold the beads and the lace.
- Bilateral co-ordination (using both hands together) to steady the lace whilst threading the bead.
- Selecting the right bead to make a pattern, which is a form of early maths.
- Patience, perseverance and focus.
Master these and starting school seems a whole lot less daunting.
Or, of course, you could just make a necklace for the fun of it.
