Lacing activities may seem simple, but they help toddlers hone important skills they will use throughout their lives. Each time they insert the string in a hole, they improve their hand/eye coordination, attention span, and concentration. Kids also improve their grasping skills, especially their pincer grasp, while lacing. When a string gets tangled, kids develop problem-solving skills to untangle it and keep lacing or tying. You can use activities like Melissa and Doug Lace and Trace toys to practice this new skill while also learning about animals.
