WordCraft: Making… b for beads

As DD has started showing early interest in words now, this craft was thought up for her benefit.  Aside from being a fun way to learn to spell, I also like the element of fine motor skills practice.  🙂

Will WordCraft become a regular series?  Hmm…maybe….maybe…  😉

You will need the following materials: assorted craft beads, coloured paper, cardboard, marker, glue.

1. Paste the cardboard on the back of the coloured paper. This makes it sturdy so it can withstand the weight of the beads that will be glued on.
2. With the marker, write out the word “beads”.

3. Apply glue onto the letters…

…and arrange the beads. DD insisted on doing this on her own so I left her to it.

"Mummy, you don't help!"

I thought the end result was really pretty! 🙂

This could be a fantastic idea if your child’s name starts with B…like room door nameplates…or in a wooden frame above their bed…or on a bookcase…so many possibilities!

      Hi Ruth,

      Heehee, yes. The twine on her necklace snapped and I had a long string of beads sitting around for some time, so this turned out a useful way of repurposing it! 🙂
