Homemade Lacing Cards

I found some cute lacing cards from Totally Tots and I wanted to make some for myself. I tweaked them just a little so I thougtt I would share.

I picked up a package of Foam Sheets at Hobby Lobby for $4.99.
Cut out shapes. Punch holes around the edge.
The problem I noticed was that if she pulled the ribbon too hard it would come back through the holes. I made a coordinating ribbon for each shape. At the end of the ribbon I attached a piece of the foam so that it could act as a stopper.
Not only can they practice lacing and shapes but they can practice matching the colors.

Now what to do with this?!?

I say that you let Michaela (if she won't try to eat them) use glue and glue them to paper. She'd have so much fun making a pretty picture (and a mess!!)

Those lacing cards look great and I'm pretty sure I have an unopened package of foam sheets around here somewhere...

Love the tiny dots! That's exactly like something I'd stash away in my "Waiting for Inspiration" drawer! Ha! You could do a large D and put glue dots down, letting her glue the actual piece on it. Or, she could sort them by color. Or, use them as confetti. :)
