Make this lovely sandcastle lacing kids for the kids to lace up with brown or yellow wool. Older kids could pick out the details - for example, the yellow stars or the window and door - with running stitch.
Sandcastle Lacing Card
Print our ice cream lacing card on to card, cut out and laminate before punching holes around the edge for children to practice lacing a piece of yarn through. They could try making patterns by lacing across the card.
Here's an unusual lacing card for the kids - but one that would be fun for a seaside theme, perhaps. Use sparkly or silver wool for a very special effect.
