Lacing and weaving activities provide a great educational and developmental experience for preschoolers.

As children grasp the tip of the item that they are lacing with, they are building their pincer grip which is crucial for writing skills.

They also learn patterns and develop hand-eye coordination through the very act of lacing or weaving.

Finally, it is also a lesson in patience as they ever so slowly work their way across the lacing base with their implement.
