Thing Necklace Safety – Avoid strangulation or choking

Teething necklaces are products designed as jewellery with an additional function of being a teether for young children to chew on during the teething process. It is well known that teething can be a painful process and pressure on the baby’s teeth from chewing may relieve the pain.

Teething necklaces generally consist of silicone or other chewable material beads advertised as jewellery to be worn by mum and suitable for babies to chew on. Teething necklaces can generally be found on-line or at weekend markets.

by Robyn..... Beads on Kelly Street

We have recently added a new range of wooden beads to our website that are made out of Hinoki Wood - Hard and Rot Resititant are just some of it's features.

A common companion of the Japanese cedar, Cryptomeria japonica, is the famous Japanese hinoki, Chamaecyparis obtusa. Hinoki is a smaller tree, however in ancient times massive ones existed – alas those forests of old are long gone. Nevertheless, this tree has a special place in Japanese culture, revered mostly for its wood, but also for the fragrant essential oils found throughout its tissues.

Simple Valentine Heart Craft

by Robyn..... Beads on Kelly Street

Here’s a super simple preschool craft for Valentine’s Day. All you need are pipecleaners and beads to make this Valentine heart craft.

My son is very excited about all of the Valentine decorations in the stores this year. He points out the reds and pinks as we pass by them. He talks about all of the hearts he sees. He was equally excited when I brought out materials to make our own Valentine crafts. I’ll be showing them to you over the next few weeks.

First up is the easiest of all our craft ideas: Beaded Valentine hearts.

I set this craft up as an invitation for Aiden. I bent the pipecleaner into a heart shape and set a handful of pony beads next to it. We had made ornaments with pipecleaners and beads at Christmas time, so he was familiar with the materials. Otherwise, I would show him how to place the beads on the pipecleaner.

He immediately picked up the pipecleaner and started adding beads one by one.
