I love this chimpanzee lacing card and I think the kids will too! It makes a fun lacing or sewing activity for the kids. Laminate for extra strength and if you wish to reuse.
Chimpanzee Lacing Card
Here's a happy, smiley monkey lacing card for you to download and print. The outline is a bit of a challenge so simplify it for younger children as you cut out if you need to.
This is a perfect lacing card for younger children, who will have fun lacing all around the edges of the simple monkey outline! Print onto card, punch holes evenly around the edges, and lace! You could laminate the activity to make it last longer, or just do it as a "one off".
