Spaghetti and Beads

I picked up some alphabet beads at the Dollar Tree, and the boys had a pretty good time carefully threading them on spaghetti noodles. This activity worked even better as a wind-down activity before bed. They focused longer at night than during the day when I told them they could do this activity as long as they wanted else it was time to brush teeth and go to bed. Eventually, they asked for bed since they “got tired of this”, but for a good solid 15 minutes they were super into it.
