Your child can learn the ins and outs of lacing with seven super-sturdy chipboard animal cards. These brightly colored creatures can also be used with paper to trace animal shapes to clip and decorate. Both activities are great for learning hand-eye coordination and manual dexterity. Along with seven 36-inch laces, the set includes cards in the shape of a cat, a horse, a bunny, a whale, an elephant, a bear, and a dolphin. Each card measures about six inches at its widest diameter. Laces with grippable 1-inch tips make lacing easy.
