39. Threading activities: the secret to perfect pencil grip

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.
