My children just got the opportunity to play with the String Along Lacing Kit by Educational Insights.
The String Along Lacing kit comes with
- a plastic square with circles cut out and foam inside
- a threading pen
- 18 colorful string/laces
- 16 pattern cards/templates
- Activity Guide
The pen at first was difficult to thread, but after some help from mom my kids were off to a great start. It was much easier for them to make free form creations and designs than follow the templates.
Why we liked the String Along Lacing Kit
- The String Along Lacing Kit templates 16 different pattern cards with designs from cars to houses, from holidays to animals.
- The toy is good for helping little ones with fine motor skills, counting, and color recognition.
- My 3-year-old was amazed at how she could make zig-zags and attempted at tying the strings, maybe this will help them both learn how to tie their shoes!
- My 6-year-old was amused by the fact that each card had an “opposite” on the back, the one that contained the car template had a house template on the back, the one that contained the moon template had the sun template on the back and so forth.
Hopefully with some practice they will be able to make the cute pumpkin or Christmas Tree to display for the holidays. All and all I love that it is teaching my children something and they don’t even realize they are learning!
