Threading is a life skill which has many benefits for your children.

  • Fine motor control: The muscles of the hands and fingers are strengthened.
  • Eye-hand coordination: Threading requires a good deal of eye-hand coordination which is necessary for most scholastic activities including drawing, writing, cutting and sewing.
  • Crossing the midline of the body: Because both hands are involved in threading activities, the child will need to cross the midline when threading.
  • Visual perception: Colour and shape recognition, sequencing
  • Planning and concentration – Before copying the pattern cards, select the required beads.
  • Tactile experiences: Place a few beads in ‘n bag.  The child places his hand into the bag and takes out a shape according to instructions:  Ask the child to feel for a square/oval/round bead.
