At a friend's house yesterday I noticed that Ellie liked beading and making necklaces with her little friend. So while we at Joanns on the way home we bought a bag of beads and some plastic floss. Tonight after dinner we sat down and decided to string beads together. She made a necklace and I made a little bead man for her to play with. I figure she'll get a lot of use out of this bag of beads and floss. And it will help with her hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills as well.
