Keeping Kids Busy: Cheerios Jewelry

I spent the weekend with my cousins this week. Beading is one of their favorite activity and seriously, who wouldn't love to make Cheerios bracelets and rings?

I thought this would be the most perfect way to spend the noon especially for Jana (the one in the 101 Dalmatians' PJ's) who has a problem with using her right hand since birth as the nurse delivering her pulled it too hard.
Passing the thread and holding the "beads" requires using both hands, so making a pretty bracelet encouraged her to use her right hand more. :) I call it success!
I'll leave you with a big collage showing how we spent our afternoon:

It's such a great activity to exercise those little muscles and have a tasty snack at the same time. We ate our bracelets just as soon as we're done showing them off! lol


See y'all soon,
