OT Approved Toy | Wooden Lacing Beads

Wooden lacing beads are classic, simple and sturdy. What more can you ask for? Oh, and they're great for developing fine motor skills, too! Wooden beads come in so many shapes and colors, you're sure to find something that matches your child's interests! To add in an educational component, you can also use the beads for sorting and counting. Or hide the beads in a sensory bin for some fun tactile exploration.

Best for ages: 2 - 5 years

Skills addressed: 

  • fine motor
  • hand eye coordination
  • bilateral coordination


Where to buy:

I personally like to pick up Melissa and Doug toys at Michaels when I have one of those infamous 40% off coupons. It's hard to beat that deal for such high quality toys! If you prefer (and for a wider selection) you can order wooden beads from Amazon. If the selection is too overwhelming, I personally like these ones and you can find the farm animal beads pictured above here.
