Lace your shoes! - Fine Motor Activity for Kids This activity is great for young children to learn how the shoe laces work. It is easy to make, fun for kids and low cost. You can use real shoe too, but this tissue box makes it easier for young.
Could also connect a bunch of locks and put all the keys on a key ring. Lots of pictures of latch, lock, etc ideas for montessori type preschool. This lock one could be made with 2 boards, some o-rings, and some locks from Dollar Store.
