Description

The Happy Easter: Easter Egg Threading Card Craftivity is the ideal Easter gift for students to share with their families. Students will develop fine motor skills as they create a gorgeous Easter egg magnet by threading string and beads through our egg template. You might like to challenge students to create a repeating pattern with their beads simultaneously. Once complete, each student’s egg magnet can sit inside the matching Easter basket card, ready to be gifted to their loved ones! Threading activities are such important fine motor activities for our young learners for many reasons:
  1. They help build small muscle strength as students grasp different-sized beads.
  2. They improve visual perceptual skills as students choose the beads they want to thread next.
  3. They improve hand-eye coordination as students thread each bead onto the string.
  4. They also improve concentration and planning skills as students plan and carry out the beading pattern they set out to complete.
For your convenience, we have included an instruction page with examples of the threaded egg and card. We recommend printing the egg templates on pastel-coloured cardstock. Students in the Early Years may benefit from having this resource enlarged to A3.
