Lacing with Water Noodles

This lacing withย water noodles activity from My Little Gems is awesome! Grab a few of the water noodles that are hopefully on sale right now and make them into a large lacing activity by cutting the noodles into pieces.

I have had this activity on my “to do” list all summer and still haven’t made them, but I wanted to share this idea with you before the noodles disappear from the stores!
Lacing with Water Noodles is great for fine motor skill development and can also be used to sort by color, work with patterning, or write letters on the pieces and make words!

    This is exactly what I need for Ash! I’ve looked into those string and bead sets, but I was always worried she’d put them in her mouth and choke on them. Now I’m worried that her sister would put them in her mouth. This is a great alternative. Thanks!

    We’re working on beginning reading skills, so writing letters on the pieces is a great idea to make putting words together a fun activity!
