DIY Lacing Board
I still had some peg board left over from several past projects, so I opened the tool box to see if anything inspired me. I ended up making a lacing board. This is a great activity for fine motor skills. My son laced for a good half hour when it was complete. He particularly enjoyed pulling the string OUT and watching it slither through all of the loops. "Its like a snake", he would say.
