This is one of the most fun activities we have done so far — my boys spent so much time on this and LOVED coloring all of the individual sections!

You will need a flat sheet of cardboard (I just used the back of a cereal box), probably about 4 feet of string (wire or anything with a raised edge will work) and preferably permanent markers but washables will work too (they just might smear).

Next, cut some slits around the outside of the cardboard as shown in the picture. Once you have done that your child can begin to lace the cardboard with their string. It doesn’t matter which slit they go to next–just hit them all and trim off the end of your string.

Lastly, wrap your cardboard in tin foil and make sure to press the edges down on the front so you can see the outline of the string and COLOR!
