Beading helps to develop fine motor skills, eye hand coordination and even math skills as children must follow patterns and decide how long to make something. Using some sand and glue, you can make your own sand beads and create one of a kind creations!
: 30 minutes (beads need to dry overnight or longer depending on humidity)
: Any Age
NOTE: Our sand was quite course and we found it a bit hard to work with. If you have course sand, perhaps try adding half sand, half flour and it may be easier to form the beads.
Experiment with different shapes and try making cylindrical beads too!
