this is a super simply thing you can make for your little one! first you get a piece of cardboard and cut it out.. any shape is fine! you can cover the edges with tape or fabric to make them softer for little hands. the you simply punch holes around the edge. get a shoelace and tie one end so it cannot be pulled through the holes.. then hand it to your little one and show them how to lace.. and hopefully this will kep him/her occupied for a little while!
