Turtle Lacing

To help us hone our fine motor skills, we strung shoestrings through a turtle-themed lacing card.


Parents may think that activities like these have very little developmental significance, but the truth is just the opposite.


Activities like this are crucial because they allow a break in the sometimes monotonous tasks of tracing or even coloring, and provides a wide range of motion that young writers can use.


Lacing activities also enable young children to become aware of the roles of their dominant and non-dominant hands.


Stabilizing the cards while working the shoestring through the holes strengthens those little fingers and muscles.
