Threading Fun Activities for Kids using spools, buttons and pipe cleaners by learning 4 kids

Threading Activity for Kids: When setting up this threading activity for kids, my goal was to make it bright and inviting using different materials. The Coloured Wooden Spools and different Shape Buttons are very much bright and inviting for to arouse children’s curiosity.

The wooden spools and buttons added to the learning experience by introducing sorting by colours and shapes. The open-ended nature of the activity also sparked creativity and learning about patterns.
