We know that threading is good for concentration, coordination and developing fine motor skills. Activities that strengthen the muscles in the fingers and the hand, particularly when using the pincer grip to manipulate small objects such as laces, help prepare the hand for writing.
Our natural wooden threading board not only provides great opportunities for fine motor & dexterity to develop, but also creative & logical thinking. Our board comes with 6 colourful laces and is beautifully made with soft-finished edges. It comes in a cotton drawstring bag for storage, making it great for taking out and about. Younger children can simply practicing threading whilst older children can see what the can design- a house? a tree? a rainbow?
Key areas of learning:
- Develops focus and concentration span.
- Encourages the use of the pincer grip, important for writing skills.
- Aids hand-eye coordination.
- Provides opportunities for creativity.
Size: Board approx. 18cm x 14cm x 2.5cm, each lace approx. 115cm in length.
