Cardboard Threading – Activity for Children
For this activity you can use string, thread, or even shoelaces. Cardboard works best as it provides a sturdy base for the children to grasp. The cardboard can be cut into fun shapes such as a star or rabbit and use a hole punch (or scissors or a screwdriver – be careful!) to create holes around the edge of your cardboard base. Thread the string through the holes to make a creative design and hang as a decoration or unthread to use again.
What they learn
Cardboard threading is great for practising fine motor skills and dexterity and creates an excellent foundation for the beginning of learning how to tie our shoelaces.
This activity is suitable for ages 2 years and above.
