What our experts think
This Aquabeads studio set is a colourful and enticing way of encouraging creativity and the development of fine motor control in the fingers and hands. It was lovely to see the children making the star shape and then gifting it to friends and family members as a ‘well done’ gift.
The children started off following the template and then, as their confidence grew, they enjoyed making their own patterns. As they build their creativity, they develop other skills such as colour matching, identifying shapes and counting the different beads to make the design. Parents were pleased with the simple action of spraying water to set the pattern.
