This pretty set of dragonfly threading beads from Djeco is fun to play with and has many educational benefits. The colourful dragonfly, butterfly, ladybirds, bees, leaves and flowers are made from a combination of wood and felt. Lacing activities help children develop hand-eye co-ordination and manual dexterity skills. Thread the pieces onto the cord in any order and encourage young children to name each piece and the colour. You can even make up fun counting games using the lacing beads. How many spots does the ladybird have? How many stripes does the bee have? Use the lacing beads to talk about ladybirds or butterflies and their preferred natural habitat, then explore your garden or a local park in search of the real thing!
