During our regular home school curriculum the other day, we were working on patterns. This is a challenging concept for little ones, so I decided to try to make patterns a little bit more fun this morning … with bead necklaces! It was so easy and she had a blast creating her own pattern necklaces. We started off with these cheap Target beads, then used our Melissa & Doug bead necklace kit for more complex patterns with shapes and letters. We had so much fun, I hope you’ll try it out with your toddler!
