Toys - lacings of

Many parents heard that it is very important to develop at the child “small motility of hands“ which is directly connected with development of the speech.


to Development of small motility are promoted by occupations with games in which there are fine details (for example, “Mosaic“), manipulation with small objects (for example, with beads), insertion of inserts in a framework and many other things.

One of the most effective ways of development of small motility are of game - lacings .

very simple lacings Happen, for example, the big wooden button and a wooden needle with a lace, wooden “cheese“ with holes, shoes and so forth

A are games more difficult.

I Bring to your attention the game “Lodge“ .

It represents a plywood silhouette of a lodge with a roof and a pipe. On all surface of a lodge round openings are executed equally spaced. Plywood are applied to “Lodge“:“ door“ (rectangle), “window“ (square), garret “window“ (circle) and several laces.

the simplest that the child can do - to push laces in openings and to pull out them from a reverse side (as well as in other toys - lacings).

When the child drags a lace through a hole, pay attention of the kid to a lace arrangement on “lodge“ - above or below, on the right or at the left, in the center. It is possible to tell that the lace is a snake, she likes to creep on a lodge (to crawl through holes).

When “snake“ creeps, pay attention of the kid to its arrangement on a rug - above or below, on the right or at the left, in the center. Tell where the snake wants to spread, let the kid will help it.

Pay attention to how the snake creeps: directly or on diagonal.

When he will well learn to push a lace in openings, can try to draw on a lodge patterns a lace. At first let “draws“ independently: lines, crosses, simple figures.


the second lace (other color) and draw with it a simple pattern from two - three lines (for example, in the left part of a lodge), ask the kid to repeat after you (in his right part). When performing patterns pay attention of the child to the number of lines in drawing, to the size of lines (long, well, the shortest), to their direction (horizontally, vertically or on diagonal) and to their arrangement in the field (on the right, at the left, above, below).

Complicate patterns - samples, do them of two - three laces of different color. It is possible to do just patterns or subject pictures. Let the kid repeat after you.

Patterns can be done to

on the drawn tasks - from very simple to difficult.

Let the child draws patterns under your dictation: from the top right corner a strip down - one step. Then on the left - one step. Then down - two steps and so on.

Represent a simple pattern, show to the child and clean, having suggested to reproduce on the home field on memory. Gradually complicate a task.

Represent a pattern, suggest to look attentively at it, then change one element and ask the child to guess what changed and to correct. Gradually complicate a pattern and increase the number of changes.


Make two identical patterns, having allowed one inaccuracy. Ask the child to find and correct it so that both patterns were identical.

Acquaint the child with the concept “symmetry“, having made several symmetric drawings or patterns. Ask him to make any symmetric drawing. Suggest to correct the mistake made by you in a pattern, so that it became symmetric.


to the child about the elementary geometrical figures, representing them on a lodge laces:

besides, using this game, you can acquaint the kid with various types of seams, teach to sew “buttons“ (windows) or a patch (door).

In a word, it is not just a toy, and quite universal adaptation on development of small motility, the imagination, attention, memory and many other.
