This deluxe beading set is a jewelry designer’s dream! The wooden sorting tray comes stocked with 8 multicolored cords that can be cut to the size you choose—necklace, bracelet, or anklet—and 220 handcrafted heart, flower, and butterfly beads with an array of lovely design details. This bead set for kids offers multiple educational activities for children. Have kids sort the beads into groups by color, shape, or size, count the items in each group, and identify which group has the most beads and which has the fewest. Or, use the beads to begin a simple pattern on one of the cords, then pass the cord to your child and ask her to continue the pattern. This Melissa and Doug kids beads set helps children to develop strong fine motor and cognitive skills, while also promoting hand-eye coordination. The Bead Bouquet Deluxe Wooden Bead Set makes an exceptional gift for kids from 4 to 8 years old. Add the Melissa and Doug Lace and Trace Activity Set to round out the hands-on play experience and give kids another engaging option for screen-free fun.
