- pipe cleaners
- plastic pony beads
- a die
How to Set Up The Activity
- Start by pouring the beads onto a tray or a shallow dish.
- Prep the pipe cleaners by making a loop on the end so the beads stay on.
- The youngest player goes first.
- Roll the die and place that number of beads on the pipe cleaner.
My daughter was pleased with this simple version of the game but for older kids you could use two dice and have them add or subtract or make a pattern with the different colors.
Don’t forget to count the beads as you go to see who is winning. Who has the most? How many more? There is a ton of math in this simple activity.
When you are all done thread the end of the pipe cleaner through the loop twist to secure and tuck the end into the beads. Wear it with pride!
