Eggcellent Sewing

You’ve probably noticed by now that most of our printables come with some sort of story — like yesterday my boys insisted on a bunny cameo banner, the bunny cameo door decoration was because Bettijo wanted something springy for her door… Well, my friends, today’s printable is no different.

Easter-Egg-Lacing-Activity2

I’m always on the search for simple quiet activities for my boys. (Aren’t we all?) I especially appreciate activities that have a learning or creative thinking component. So when Harrison was “sewing” his lacing wooden toys the other day, I thought I may as well make an Easter version to bring to church on Easter Sunday.

What I like most about lacing toys is that they can be a quiet activity, they encourage our little ones to use their fingers and they help with pattern practice. Pattern practice? Yes! I never thought of this until I overheard a Supermom one day explaining the pattern. I always would explain up, down, up, down and so forth, yet I never made the connection for my boys about it being a simple, AB pattern. What a perfect way to introduce the math concept at an early age!

TO MAKE: Download your Eggcellent Sewing printable (links below). Print out on card stock and laminate (optional). Using a regular office-size hole punch create holes around the perimeter of the egg shape. Of course don’t forget the shoe lace (you could substitute yarn or string with the ends taped) to do the lacing.

  1. What i do not understood is in truth how you’re not really much more neatly-appreciated than you might be
    right now. You are so intelligent. You understand thus
    significantly with regards to this topic, made me in my view consider it
    from so many varied angles. Its like women and men don’t
    seem to be involved unless it is one thing to accomplish with Woman gaga!
    Your individual stuffs outstanding. Always maintain it up!
