We had been reading the lovely Golden book "The shoelace box" at bedtime as it is one of Tara's favourites. Such a lovely story for the preschool age and so the next day we made our own shoelace box to practice for school next year...
We needed one shoe box,some ribbon of all widths,textures and colours and scissors
With the scissors i made two holes about 2 inches apart. The ribbon i tied together at the ends and
threaded through the holes.Having different colours helps distinguish when folding and crossing. Tara found the thick satin ribbons easiest and in time will manage the thinner ones.
