For all threading projects I have always used tape on the end of the yarn to make it easier for little hands to sew, lace or thread beads. It is one of those things that was an OK solution but an aggravating one at that. A little piece of pipe cleaner changed all that and I am VERY happy with the results. The needle stays on, the yarn does not fray, and it's much easier for the little hands to work.
I've used it with threading pasta for a necklace and it works well in that project as well.
