Get the kids outside and go on a nature walk! Let the kids have fun picking wildflowers, greenery, foliage, sticks, etc so they can do a fun threading activity. Print off our free bear prints so the kids can add all the items they collected on the nature walk to make a beautiful flower of crowns (also known as a haku in Hawaiian). This floral crown activity is so simple and fun, plus it gets the kids outside exploring the world around them!
The supplies are minimal:
After your walk, find a bench or some grass to start threading. Just make sure there’s a long enough stem to pull the flowers through the holes.
And that’s it! So easy but so fun! Threading is such a great activity for kids (especially young ones) because it helps with hand-eye coordination and concentration skills. It also develops fine motor skills that help them write, draw and even tie shoelaces!
If you love simple activities like this one, check out our Dande-lion Adventure or our Cocomelon Wash Your Face activity. Or follow us on Instagram @thealohahut for even more great ideas and free printables!
Happy threading friends!
