Wash & String Beads
( Alex $16 Score: )

Twelve colorful wooden beads in the shape of clothing that preschoolers can string on a line. The string comes with a wooden dowel that makes it easier to thread through the beads. This kind of action develops fine motor skills of little hands as well as eye hand coordination. The various clothes also can expand vocabulary as kids identify pants, shirts, blouses, bathing suit. Playing pieces are good for pretend as well as counting. 3& up. The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.

SNAP IDEA:  Stringing threads through these wooden clothing shapes helps children develop fine motor skills as well as eye hand coordination. As they handle these wooden shapes you might want to use them to play a riddle game of “I’m thinking of something…” for example “I’m thinking of something that goes inside of shoes, they come in twos…they rhyme with rocks.” Yes, you found the socks. Or how about I’m thinking of something that has lots of dots, it is worn by girls, it rhymes with yes.” You found the dress! Or simply play a game of matching colors…”I spy two things that are yellow and pink…can you find them?” Knowing and naming the clothes is another way to reinforce vocabulary.
