Holidays have started for my daughter and like every mom I too am worried as to how to keep her busy. She loves swimming and hence I have enrolled her for a swimming class which is from morning 8-9 .After that she is free till evening when she goes out to play with her friends.
I have planned a few activities for her which would keep her busy for 1-2 hours. I would be writing them in next few blogs. My daughter is 4 years old. So the activities would be suitable for a 4-5 year old kids. Here comes the first one of the lot!
Beads interest my daughter a lot and she loves to make beads jewelry. I usually get beads for her but this time to add some educative value to it, I decided to get beads with letters, so that she can prepare bracelets for her cousins!

She first wanted to start with her brother’s name and then we did hers
I wrote her name on a whiteboard and then she searched for the beads and kept them below each letter.
The next step was moving these inside the string. Here she was moving them haphazardly, so I had to guide her than all have to be in
one direction !
She then did this for her cousins and spent 1 hour doing that.
