This is my (I mean my kids') new favorite toy. Okay, I have a confession to make. Sometimes I buy toys because they look like so much fun! Look at those bright colors. Who could resist?
After deciding that I had to buy this toy from Target, I next needed to rationalize this purchase. (I could use this for school. Yeah. That's a good excuse).
They are really great for making patterns. The goal was to secretly open the package when no one was looking and then sneak it to school as a math pattern practice center.
What was I thinking? That was not going to happen. My kids absolutely LOVE the beads, and each day they play with them.
Maybe next time huh?
