What Do We Learn When Lacing and Threading?

Fine motor skills - Develop a solid pincer grip, improve hand strength and fine tune finger movements by manipulating the string and threading it through the holes and beads.

Hand-eye -coordination - Simultaneously use hands and eyes to thread and lace. Link visual spatial perception and movement.

Spatial awareness  - By accurately aiming for the hole one is able to develop an understanding of body position in relation to the Twineapple through concepts such as direction, distance and location.

Bilateral coordination - Use both hands together for a common goal. This helps in crossing the midline as well as developing a dominant hand for the future.

Numeracy - Early maths skills are developed through counting the holes and beads as well as adding and subtracting beads.
