Lid threading - Lid snake, Lid baby toy
Last year I attended Preschool with my son and learnt a lot.
This is the best thing (as in 'gets played with daily') that Dylan has made at preschool that his wee sister also loves, so lets make her one.
I have also seen an older boy playing with his Lidsnake in the garden so know that it is a firm favorite with other children.
I like the recycle & reuse element to this and its a threading skill also good for strengthening their little hands. You can also use pictures, numbers or letters in the threading.
Save lids off milk bottles, spice tubs, Vegemite, peanut butter, juice plastic and colourful. cotton reels are great too, you can even have chunks of wood chopped and drilled etc.
You also need a boot lace. & Drill. laminated pics/numbers/letters any size that suits we used @ 7cm x 5cm. & hole punch.
The boot laces with the hard long ends are great for kids to grasp and thread.
Drill holes in lids, Dylan loves using the drill.
Punch holes in laminated pictures
