If your child isn’t a fan of lacing cards, my son wasn’t, he found it to be a difficult activity for him so he hated it.
I would race him, I’d get my own lacing card and we’d see who could finish first.
I like lacing cards as it prepares them to learn how to tie their own shoelaces, something that took longer for my boys to do but was picked up much quicker by my daughter.
