I printed off some simple vehicles and glued them to some cardboard (boy do we have lots of cardboard after just moving-and it seems to be multiplying!). My boys colored the pictures and I cut the cards out. Punch holes along the edge and set your kids to work lacing the cards with a shoelace and improving their hand-eye coordination…my 2 year old needed help pulling the lace through but enjoyed it for quite a while.
It took a while for my 4 year old to want to lace them but he eventually felt this activity was worthy of his time and laced up an entire card on his own. I think I’ll put these in the car for long trips!
