Learning to Lace

Learning to lace is fun and helps children develop fine motor skills.
Items needed:
1.Oak tag or cardboard from a cereal box
3.Hole puncher

Cut a large block letter from the oak tag or cereal box. The letter could be the first letter in your child's name. Next, use the hole puncher to make holes around the perimeter. Cut a length of yarn and roll a piece of tape on one end to stiffen it. Then show your child how to thread the yarn through the holes in and out until he's gone all the way around the letter or finished using the yarn.
