Toddler Sewing

Found a set of lacing cards at the Disney outlet store and had to have them. 
 
I thought the girls might find them interesting, and that it might encourage their interest in crafting (and hanging out with grandma)
  
Oh yeah, want to guess what became Leanne's absolute favorite toy the minute she saw them? Leia thinks the cards are OK but five minutes of sewing on these and she's done. 

I showed Leanne the basics - place string in hole, pull through, repeat - and she was off.
  
She's a creative stitcher, using multiple colors,
 
unique stitching paths,
  
and joining cards in creative ways.
 
And once all the cords are used up? It's time for Grandma to un-sew so she can start all over again. I think my plan is working!
