- Greeting cards or postcards
- Shoelaces the longer the better
- Hole punch
Glue the greeting card closed, or glue two postcards together. Allow time for the glue to dry. Punch holes around the edges of the cards. Make big holes for younger children and smaller holes for older children, according to the child's coordination. Let the child thread the shoelace through the holes. Make up different patterns; threading in one and out the other hole, or skipping a hole and then coming backwards.
