Increase fine-motor control, introduce problem-solving, develop concentration, and encourage quiet play with these unique, durable Lauri shapes. Colorful, heavy-duty chipboard lies flat for smoother tracing, and kids love the shapes. The lacing activity develops the pincer grip which is important to penmanship skills. Laces are 36' long with easy-to-thread 1' tips - and enough laces for all the shapes. Ages 3-6.
