PlumGirl has been interested in lacing for a while now. I originally found her a set of lacing beads at a consignment sale, but she was having trouble with the string it came with.
Then, I found the Alex Toys String a Farm. This set is great! Not only are the farm animals fun, but the string has a wooden needle attached that makes lacing a lot easier.
Even though PlumGirl had been playing with these for quite some time, she hadn’t mastered threading the bead onto the needle and then grabbing the needle and pulling the string through.
Then, this morning something clicked!
She had so much fun and filled up the entire string!
She even practiced naming a few colors, matching colors, and her animal sounds while she was lacing the beads. I also named some of the shapes for her. I am very tempted to buy a second set of Alex and Co beads because I know that she will enjoy them and I will have two strings with needles for when the PlumTwins want to play with them in the future.
