The youngest can just thread in and out of holes, they used to be called sewing cards and had an image in heavy cardboard with holes punched and a think shoelace to move in and out of holes. Putting large beads on a lace also helps small ones with dexterity if that helps. I used to teach pre-k sometimes many years ago.
