Use a 7" piece of ribbon or white plastic lacing to form a loop right under the top of the hat with which to hang your ornament. St. Patrick's Day is tomorrow and you've seen some really great activity and craft ideas to use with your kiddos during therapy and at home this week.
Kiddos do love themed activities and anticipate these for each holiday. Well, I created an activity this week that can be completed by many age groups and it can be used for the holiday, the season, or for anytime really.
It's a simple activity to gather the materials for and it's easy to downgrade or upgrade. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple pipe cleaners2.
Red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple pony beads 3. Gather your colored pipe cleaners in a rainbow sequence and loop one end by twisting it back around itself and keeping the ends bent close into the grouping.
Place cloud shapes onto each side of the pipe cleaner loop, with one of the front and one on the back. Now, that the pipe cleaners are grouped and looped and cloud shapes are placed, have child begin matching and placing the pony beads onto each pipe cleaner.
When the child nears the end of the first pipe cleaner strand, loop the pipe cleaner back over the last pony bead and through the second and third pony bead from the end. At the end, have child bend the pipe cleaners into an arch like a rainbow.
Adult can complete the pipe cleaner rainbow sequence with loop twisting, cloud cutting and cloud placement prior to presenting the activity to the child. Have child simply sort each color of pony bead they need from a collection of pony beads with adult stringing or alternating bead stringing with child.
Complete the activity using thicker pipe cleaners and larger beads based on child's skill level. Shorten the length of pipe cleaners to reduce the number of beads required to string.
Have child complete all steps of the activity with only use of a model and adult minimizing assistance and cues. This allows for older child to work on executive functioning skills such as problem-solving, organizing, sequencing, sustained attention, planning, and task initiation.
Have child completing all the steps to include looping, twisting, wrapping, and securing with instruction from adult. Use smaller pipe cleaners and beads based on child's skill level.
IMPORTANT NOTE: THIS ACTIVITY REQUIRES COMPLETE ADULT SUPERVISION AS IT CONTAINS SMALL PARTS AND COULD POSE A CHOKING HAZARD FOR YOUNG CHILDREN AND THOSE WHO MOUTH AND PLACE ITEMS IN THEIR MOUTH. Loop and twist the group of pipe cleaners into a rainbow pattern.

It was in the 1800s when the early explorers Lewis and Clark brought trade inventory consisting of pony beads to North America. In 1929, the term pony beads was first used for these beads when they were delivered via the Pony Express.
From then, these beads have been used by girls and women to decorate shoes and clothing. They were used with a range of other beads for jewelry making to design necklaces and bracelets.
There are themed shaped ones available such as sports, medical, music, transportation, holiday, Christmas, etc. The transparent ones resemble glass beads to a great extent, and they also appear seamless and of good quality.
