My mum enjoys stringing the brightly coloured beads, shells and charms and makes beautiful strands that together we use to create window hangings.
Mum's favourite beads are the flower ones ... especially forget-me-not beads.
We have also made some lovely flowers and butterflies using pipe-cleaners!
Keeping mum's hands busy lessens her anxiety so having meaningful activities like beading is very important. I make sure she has crafts and puzzles to do every day and its just lovely to see her proud of all her creations!
I hope our bead projects inspire and help others who are struggling to find a simple yet beautiful craft they can enjoy!
Lacing is a simple activity but very valuable in keeping hand-eye co-ordination!
I bought a couple of different children’s lacing packs but mum’s favourite was the Mellissa & Doug one from Amazon
We found lacing to be a relaxing, meaningful activity. I hope others will enjoy it as much as my mum did.
