Melissa & Doug LACING BEADS
You can count on this wooden bead set to make a bold statement! The variety of shapes among these dramatic beads, their bold colors, and the two extra-long laces make stringing beads extra special. Twenty-seven hand-painted beads feature the numbers 1 to 10 as numerals and as countable dots to add counting fun to this lacing activity.
This Melissa & Doug beads set for kids allows adults and children to explore multiple playing activities. Parents or grown-up kids can ask the child to sort the beads by color, identify each color for the child, and repeat the activity until the child can identify all the colors independently. Parents can also encourage beginning counting skills by asking the child to count the number of beads of each color with them and repeat the activity until the child has mastered counting one group of beads.
