Lacing Cards

Materials needed:

Thin, round shoelaces or yarn with tips wrapped in masking tape

Craft foam or thick cardstock/cardboard

Hole punch

Make large, simple shapes out of foam or cardboard. Punch holes along the edge of each shape, all the way around. Let your child weave the string in and out in any way he/she likes or show him how to do a simple “stitch”. For young children, provide a pipe cleaner ‘needle’ this will help little hands get through the openings easier. (Pipe cleaner needle: a piece of pipe cleaner about 1 inch long) *the photo is of my little one stringing colored pasta :)
