    My five-year-old was fortunate enough to receive Lauri’s Crawling Critter Lacing Kit for his last birthday. After using the kit with him, I can understand why Oppenheim’s Toy Portfolio gave it a Best Toy Award. Encouraging the development of fine motor skills, eye-hand coordination, creativity, and make-believe play, this toy comes complete with 3 precut felt insect bodies; yarn for lacing; safe, easy to thread, plastic, ball-tipped needles; and remnant felt for decorating. Crawling Critter is perfect for the busy parent who wants to nourish her child’s artistic talents, but lacks the time and energy to gather and purchase the necessary materials. Just add scissors, crafting glue, and your child’s imagination to make adorable, reusable puppets! With very little mess and supervision, my son made two of the puppets on our extended road trip vacation. He spent many content hours quietly lacing and decorating his creations in the car on his lapboard. Along with the provided felt scraps, we used glitter glue, lace, buttons, and bows to embellish the puppets. The results were so great, we had several tourists ask us where we bought such “unique puppets!” Unlike some art projects that are made, then quickly forgotten, stashed in a drawer somewhere, these lacing puppets will be played with long after they are created. If you have a child, like mine, who loves insects or children who are “bugging” you for something to do on a rainy day, this craft project is for you!
