This activity helps your child’s language development as you discuss the process of this activity and the colours involved. It also benefits their fine motor development, hand-eye coordination and control and their ability to concentrate.
Using a pair of scissors, carefully pierce small holes into the cardboard boxes/containers.
Children can choose whether to use a shoelace, string or a pipe cleaner and thread through the shapes any which way they choose. Some children may follow the order of the holes around the outside, other children will go from one side to the other any way they like.

Have fun threading!
