This toy gets children excited and imaginative as they help the funky bee 'fly' through the flowers. They are fascinated because this activity requires concentration as they thread together all the flowers using a needle.

Set includes 5 pairs of wooden flowers, 4 wooden leaves, a wooden bee shaped needle, thread and a detailed instruction manual all packed in a beautiful Skola Doodle box.

Size of threaded pieces lengthwise : 128 cm x 11 cm x 0.8 cm

Once children learn to focus more on objects and improve spatial skills, they are ready to develop their eye-hand coordination. (See How).

The delicate yet simple act of threading involves using both hands simultaneously which leads to enhanced dexterity in children. Moving the hands up and down, and using 2 hands for different actions, also sets a firm base for the writing process. Pairing and threading also help children perform 2 step processes. Threading is an activity that engages children for a long time, helping them build higher concentration levels.
