I used to manage a bead store, what now seems like eons ago.
I have so much still left over from those days that I never really seem to think its worth stopping by any shops to see what they have these days.
After a bead session with a group of homeschoolers at a local bead shop, K's interests have been sparked.
Now we have daily beading sessions and I get to put out my old beads, tools and supplies.
This is great for hand eye co-ordination, patterns and counting.
Homeschooling in a practical and useful sense.
