As my preschooler shows a lot of interest towards writing, I am doing more fine motor skill activities with her to strengthen those muscles.

We put aluminium foil wrapped straws which were left over from our alumininum foil Easter egg wall art to good use. We made beads out of them and made aluminium foil beads necklace. We have made jewelry from paper and aluminium foil beads earlier. But these beads and necklace are so simple  that my preschooler made them.

My daughter enjoyed both cutting and stringing! As she was asking for more straws to cut after completing foil wrapped straws, I gave her ordinary straws to practice.
