Kids Craft Fun!- Beading

With the success of last week's Kids Craft post, I am going to add another fun Kids Craft we do around here. Now I know you supermom's are pros at all the fun ideas, but I am just showing what works around here for us :)
Pipe Cleaner Beading :)
Matthew loves to pick a pipe cleaner and then make patterns on them to make bracelets! I have an adorable pink/purple/orange custom made for me! LOL.
He loves feeling like he can make nana a gift all on his own too.
Not to mention he loves making patterns and I love watching him think through the process of 5+ color patterns!
(And yes, this is his little table in my studio. His charts hang above it, a dry erase board where we write the dayof the week, season, word of the day, and number of the day.)
Have a fab day! Don't forget to leave me a comment with any great kid craft ideas! I'd love to try them out!!!
Thanks so much for the great ideas last week!!! Hope you have more for me :)

My kids used to love pipe cleaners. Plasticine is another idea. We used to create letters to spell things out - and then squish it all up to do another!

Thanks for stopping by!
