Lacing beads are a great way to encourage dexterity and build fine motor skills. The selection of shapes and colors provides a chance to build vocabulary and broaden pattern recognition through play. Each set comes with a myriad of shapes and color to thread, sort, lace, and explore.
Each set comes with approximately 35 pieces in combination of shapes and colors. They are painted with a nontoxic wash and lightly sealed with an organic mix of beeswax and jojoba oil. They come with a string for lacing (which may be different than the one pictured) and packaged in a drawstring pouch for easy access and portability.
This is a great addition to the learning closet, a trip to Grandpa’s house, or a restaurant…Watch your little one’s concentration and fine motor skills develop through play with the Lacing Bead set.
*NOTE – This set of Lacing Beads is not intended for children who still mouth things as the pieces could be a choking hazard. As with ALL toys, children should be supervised while eat play.*
All of my creations were made with your little one in mind. Each piece was designed to nurture child development through open-ended play. These pieces can be used to broaden your little one's understanding and knowledge of our world and were created as early educational toys. I am inspired by the teachings of Montessori; the natural beauty of Waldorf; and incorporate a myriad of other learning-through-play philosophies when I design. It makes me smile to see my made-with-love pieces being toted for use as preschool toys and in natural play settings. Thank you for helping me support little minds, bodies, and imaginations through engaging, hands-on play and discovery.
Sensory Based Learning
Mama May i believes little ones make sense of their world through sensing our world. That's why you will find all of our designs offer a variety of tactile learning-through-play opportunities. We use a myriad of different textures and surfaces intertwined to make the most of every little play-and-learn time you share.
Kid Tested, Mama Approved
My own little ones have the wonderfully engaging job of "product testers". They are my inspiration for new products as well as my initial testing market. I don't add things to the product line that aren't played with and loved first at home.
Making Mama Earth Smile
Mama May i strives to reduce the impact of our products on the environment and your little one. We avoid the use of harsh chemicals and varnishes and instead, use plant based pigments, and organic beeswax to finish our wooden playthings. We use mostly untreated Poplar, Maple, and Oak that is locally sourced. We know how important your little one's safety is and we won't sell anything we wouldn't let our own little ones enjoy.
