We had some leftover Elmer’s foam board from the Pottery Barn Woodland Tree Wall Decal knockoff I made last month, so I broke out the X-ACTO knife and cut out some hearts, thinking we would make Valentines. But while I was sawing away, I inadvertently made some nicks at the edges, and realized I was onto the perfect lacing activity for Jane!
This activity is really simple, but strengthens chubby toddler hands and helps little fingers learn to manipulate something delicate and thin. I’m hoping this will get Jane ready for shoe lace tying.
