The Bead Gallery Visit - September 10th, 2009

Off we went, 10 afternoon children and 4 adults out to Richmond Mall's Bead Gallery shop. Children's interest and fascination with beads has continued from August and so, these children, who have all engaged in the bead making process at Kindergarten, visited the shop where the initial interest started.
We learnt:
  • nearly all of the beads come from India
  • all the children could thread their own beads with the right threading twine
  • that there are many colours, shapes and patterns on the beads

After the holidays, some old and new recipes for bead making will continue.....but as we are interested in visual arts and further provoking children's thinking....will all the beads end up as a bracelet?!
