This morning we went to Michael’s to pick up some embroidery floss that I needed, and Evie picked out a bag of beads. She was so excited and kept asking to open them in the store. I told her we would when we got home. A few hours later when we pulled into the garage, she immediately started yelling “beads!”
So we got a pipe cleaner and she went to town stringing the beads. This kept her occupied for a good 45 minutes, which for a toddler is an eternity.
*No toddlers were left unattended with extremely small beads. There was always adult supervision.
