Safety Pin Necklace
If your safety-pin-necklace-maker is older, get a packet of small beads so that she can put the beads on the pins and make a fancier necklace.
Concentrated and focused energy is practiced here as well as fine motor control. Add beads and you add creativity. Since they can wear their success as a necklace, they get to get admiration too.w
