During the last week of school we placed containers of round cereal and pipe cleaners on the table. We invited children to string the cereal onto the pipe cleaners and make cereal bracelets. The cereal was especially fun as it was red and green - many children were inspired to make Christmas patterns. In addition to being appealing because the cereal could be eaten as the children worked, this activity helped strengthen fine motor control and hand-eye coordination.
