Beads and Pipe cleaners together form a simple math activity for our young toddlers to know and learn about the basic concept of counting which leads and helps in the development of the great Fine Motor Skills😎

It just takes a minute or so to set up this activity 

Materials Required: 

  • Beads
  • Cup
  • Pipe Cleaners 

How To Play With:

  • Just set up the beads in a cup along with the different colored pipe cleaners on a surface and encourage your toddler to thread the beads onto the pipe cleaner

Baby Moo loved this activity with the pipe cleaners and the beads. At first he started to touch and feel the texture of beads and the round colorful beads. 

Later when Mommy taught him on how to play with, he learnt to thread the beads and started the counting play.


 It was an ‘organic play’ (as I dint want him to do the same old, sorting or counting or matching of the numbers). It was an healthy fun filled activity of that day as he explored and learnt all by himself just by playing along. 

Baby Moo made a snake 🐍 and played with them for sometime by dragging the beads up and down and of course he loved when the beads flinged into the air and fell on the floor🤷🏻‍♀️ and then we both together made a bracelet which he loved and he asked me to take photo(selfie) as he sat on me to show it to his dada😍😛


This Activity helps your toddler to learn, build and develop their fine motor skills, strengthen their little hand muscles (which helps them in their future writing skills), develops their  hand-eye coordination (as they need lots of concentration to thread the beads onto the pipe cleaners), and last but not the least they develop their basic math skills and colors with this fun play😎

Do this super-exiting activity at home with your young ones and have fun developing their early stages of  motor-numeracy skills my lovlies😍

Stay tuned!!! For more organic activities from the ChennaiMom❤️🙏🏻
