Your kids will have fun with this lace board activity book. They will love to help you paint the peg board and when it’s finished drying they can start lacing it up. We made our weekly trip to the hardware store and bought 1 sheet of peg board. They will cut the boards into the size you’ll need. You could make 4 or five books with one sheet and the project will cost you under $15 dollars, including paint. I let Charlotte pick her favorite FolkArt paint colors and we got down to business. We painted each page a different color and sealed it with the FolkArt clearcote acrylic sealer. Once the paint dried we added the loose-leaf rings.
I found that taping the ends of your string or yarn help kids get it through the holes easier. The younger children will enjoy the basic threading of the holes, while the older child will make their patterns more elaborate. I love these books for travel, quiet time, or as a great rainy day activity. Please let us know how your project turned out. We would love to see what you’re painting this summer.
