I've come to love the saying "work smarter not harder", so today I am sharing a super simple activity for Pre-K and K. It is easy and requires little prep. You will need:
3 white pipe cleaners
60 orange beads
1 green pipe cleaner
Begin by twisting your 3 white pipe cleaners together at the center, like the spokes on a wheel.
Children will add 10 pony beads to each spoke.
Then gather each end together and twist to form the stem.
Wrap a green pipe cleaner at the top and "curl" ends to form the vine by wrapping ends on a pencil.
