This simple Montessori toy is one of the most commonly seen in any Montessori classroom or home. The concept is simple. The child must pass a series of beads through a small rope. This improves hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills.

You’ll find them in countless sizes, colors and material. In keeping with Montessori principles, there is always a strong preference towards natural material such wood although it can be cost-prohibitive. Natural fibers also make for great threading materials.
