Kid activity ideas come from the strangest places. Does your pediatrician give you the Ages and Stages Questionnaires? On the 2 year old one it asks if they can string small objects onto a string. At the time, I had never tried this with my daughter. So, the morning of her appointment we tried it. She not only could do it, but she had a great time doing it. Ever since then, we have had a small box with yarn and beads in it for her to play with (when supervised). Because she loves stringing beads, I decided to make a bead bracelet with her. For Thanksgiving, I thought it would be fun to make a thankfulness Morse code bracelet.
My daughter is only 2 1/2 so she can’t read words yet. This means that Morse code is beyond her for now. But since we have talked about it, she knows her bracelet represents what she is thankful for. An older kid would obviously be able to grasp this better. I thought that this was a fun way to make a physical reminder of something to think about that not everyone can read. We made what we were thankful for, but here are some other fun ideas:
