This material includes 6 boys and 6 girls thread cards to get started. These contribute to fine motor development. Before using the material, laminate the cards and make a hole in the indicated circles with a single hole punch or awl. Make sure the holes are wide enough like the circles they indicate to thread a lace top through. The children start at the bottom or the top and put the lace through a hole, grab it with the other finger and pull it through. Now you continue like this from hole to hole (own choice) to mummify the child. You can use thicker white laces for this or colored ones! TIP: As a game format you can also use the color cards and add a color die. Then the children can put a lace through the hole with the correct color reference per turn. Find the correct one on your threading card. Or as a competition - you add your regular die and have everyone start in the same place. Dice and count how many x can your lace go through the holes ?! Be the first to fully wrap / mummify your child in the sarcophagus as a mummy.
TIP: to give the basting cards extra strength, you can stick them to a piece of cardboard after laminating and cut / cut them all around. Then they have a slightly reinforced surface. Only then do you pierce the holes with an awl.
