Threading activities are fantastic fine motor activities.
After sharing our cereal threading activity the other day, I wanted to find more ways for kids to thread.
I started hunting and hunting for the best threading activities for kids. And upon searching, I came across many lacing activities, weaving activities and sewing activities… and it made me ask:
What is a threading activity?
I had to look it up! I searched online and found on Google the following threading definition:
verb: put (beads, chunks of food, or other small objects) together or singly on a thread, chain, or skewer that runs through the center of each one.
In terms of a threading activity to do with kids, that means that the kids would be putting (threading) numerous small objects onto a longer object.
Makes sense I think. So that’s what I’m including here. Only threading activities where kids are putting numerous objects onto a longer object.
