My toddler loves to lace beads on a string. Despite his fierce determination, his fine motor skills are not quite ready for little holes and so he screams, “need help!” at me the entire time. He needs a toddler-friendly lacing activity.
I put together this homemade lacing activity for him. I cut up a paper towel roll for the “beads” and used a large ribbon, the ends of which I cut into points using pinking shears (for easier threading). For good measure I fixed a square of cardboard at one end so the “beads” would not slip off.
Just right for little hands with lofty goals.
**I wish I could have gotten a photo of his efforts, but whenever I bring out the camera New Kid stops what he’s doing and yells, “camera, camera!”
