Lacing Boards

Make your own fun and educational lacing boards for your kids!

These lacing cards will definitely keep little hands busy and entertained in the car, on a plane, at restaurants, church or even while mom's trying to get dinner ready.
Lacing toy's encourage dexterity, fine motor skills, coordination and attention to detail, all while enjoying every minute of it.

I purchased the supplies at the dollar store.
A cardboard puzzle, a foam puzzle and two books with 
the really thick pages.

I started with the Disney book and cut out the board pages.
This one book will give us six lacing cards.

The foam puzzle I left alone, but I took the cardboard puzzle 
and glued the pieces so it would'nt come apart.

Next I took a sharpie and put a dot everywhere 
I wanted a hole to be.

Then we drilled a hole on every dot!

I purchased a few bright colored shoe laces
from the dollar store to lace with.

You will need a long shoelace for each board.

 That's it!
You can let the kids take it from here.

They will have countless hours of fun!
