Hamma Beads. They have loved them. I have had to hide them today though as one mindee aged 6 would happily sit at the table all day and make things with them. Gonna have to stock up on more for next week

I know exactly what you mean, my 6 year old mindee loves them, and is making a bear as we speak :)

Mine love them too and can make them for England...but then what to do with them? :idea:
My dd was clearing room last week and came down with a box of about 30 of them that she's made over the years(she's 11) saying that she didn't want them any more! :(
Found that one of my mindees that I call my little firecracker will sit for AGES when I've got the hama beads out :clapping::laughing::D

I love hama beads.

My own children love them but most of my mindees wont sit for that long to do one specific thing :(

I tried these but I didn't find them as good as the Hama ones.

My children are into bendaroos ATM.
