This activity provides a fun winter decoration while working fine motor skills.
- Yarn or string
- Popscicle sticks
- Aluminum foil
- Construction paper
- Glue or tape
- Paper hole punch
- Cut out skate shapes (older preschoolers and older can do this step).
- Punch holes for the "laces."
- Have your child wrap the popscicle sticks with the aluminum foil. Tape or glue one to the bottom of each skate.
- Have your child string the laces through the holes (tape down the string on one side--you can see that done on the skate on the right in the picture). Go through both skates with the yarn. Then tape it down on the other skate when done lacing.
