This Shoelace Caterpillar Apple Threading Activity is a fun recycled activity for toddlers.
- Colored permanent markers
Take your cardboard and make as many double holes as you’d like with something sharp (be careful doing this! I used a screw driver and put the cardboard on the rug while poking, this worked wonderfully. But you’re welcomed to use a hole puncher if it will work through cardboard). Now freehand draw apples right where the two holes are. Next attach the shoelace to the bottom of the cardboard by tying it and use the colored permanent markers to draw a little caterpillar on the tip/plastic part of the shoelace. I just made it green. And that’s it!
This Number Weave activity took me less than 5 minutes to create. Seriously! May look like it took me longer, but I did this at 6 am while my coffee brewed.

Now using the hot glue gun, glue the ends of each strip of paper together to create a circle, then glue on to the cardboard. Make a hole at the bottom of the cardboard (I used my scissors) and secure the shoe lace. If your shoe lace isn’t long enough you can tie two together to create a long one or use a thin rope instead.
