It is also loaded with fine motor opportunites as well as letter recognition.
You will need:
ribbon or yarn
large plastic lacing needle
- Begin by cutting heart shapes from your paperboard. We used a cereal box.
- Hole punch around the edge being sure to line holes up with the inner and outer points of the heart shape.
- Lace a large plastic needle- using about 5-6 feet of ribbon or yarn. Insert ribbon through the eye of the needle, doubling over. Make sure both sides are even and knot at the end.
- Above are steps to recreate the lacing we did. There is no right or wrong way to lace. For younger kids a simple one-way lacing or side lacing stitch will be easier.
