In the box: 6 large lacing cards, 6 colored laces
A little different from your general lacing cards, you might even get boys interested in these! This activity also comes in many other themes including enchanted kingdom, alphabet, farm animals, pets, shapes, and bugs. Each card in the box includes a dot-to-dot puzzle to follow for lacing. There are six cards, each picturing a different construction vehicle. Numbers on cards range from 1-20 to 1-26. Cards are sturdy cardboard with a glossy finish. Six plastic-tipped laces are also included. Stitching will be straight stitch, as the laces are not long enough for a whip stitch. Also some of the holes are not on the edge of the card, making a whip stitch more difficult.
- Ask the individual to lace without turning over the card, instead feeling for the hole or the lace tip on the backside.
- Take the opportunity to practice tying knots in the end of the string.
- Lace backwards and practice counting backwards.
