Paper clip Jewelry
You’ve probably made a paper clip necklace at some point in your life. But, did you think to give your child this handy activity? All you need is a simple box of paper clips. If you want to go “all out”, get the colored ones. Your child’s eyes will widen if given a whole box of clips, but you will likely found them scattered around the house for forever after. Better is giving a whole bunch in a bowl and presenting your demo on “How to Make a Paper Clip” necklace. Besides the challenging fun, you can take parent pride in knowing that you’ll be increasing the fine motor skill and attention span of your young. But just as good is that while they are spending quality time focusing, you get long quality minutes to yourself. Every parent’s need! A win-win.
When the necklace is done, you can encourage a bracelet or necklaces for Dad and the neighbors.
