Make: Sewing Cards
We take our used cereal boxes and cut out the fun pictures to make lacing cards. We have also used some boxes from those fruit gummy treats – which are great, because they usually have great pics on 2 sides… simply cut out your desired section and punch holes around the edges to make lacing cards – perfect for preschoolers developing. We buy shoelaces at the Dollar Store and store them all in a bag in our craft drawer. I have great memories with lacing cards as a little kid, and this is an excellent activity to take on a car or plane ride. My kids really do like seeing the characters and “sewing” a Lightning McQueen CARS card is most definitely a “boy thing” as much as sewing princesses and rainbows are “girl things.” (These things seem to matter in our two preschoolers’ minds).
