An activity and a snack all in one! Materials Laces Circular cereal TIP: We use these flexible “desks” that have a strap that attaches to your child’s seat if you do this in the car. They provide a work surface that is safety tested. Do prepare yourself for a bit of mess, but if they are eating snacks that may be the case anyways! Directions Purchase laces (these are often at craft stores in the beading section or educational stores). You could also use a pair of new shoe laces or yarn with a bit of clear tape wrapped on the ends.) Tie a knot at one end. Give your child a small container of cereal for them to put on the lace to form a necklace. (We recommend giving a bit a time in case there are any spills!) Knot the 2 ends together. Once they are done- munch away! Purpose Developing fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination. Safety Notes Be sure to remove necklaces for play (e.g, on playground structures) to avoid strangulation and wear with direct supervision.
