What you will need:
1. Download and print activity sheet
2. Scissors
3. Cardboard (reuse a cereal box!)
4. Lamination/Clear Contact Paper/Packaging Tape
5. Hole Punch/Craft Knife/Punch/Box Cutter
6. Glue Stick
7. String
Download Printable Sheet
Directions:
1. Print lacing card activity sheet.
2. Cut out the lacing card and mount on cardboard.
3. Laminate the lacing card or cover with clear contact paper/packaging tape.
4. Punch holes near each image. (I cut mine out with a box cutter!)
5. Tie a knot at the end of a string to prevent it from being pulled completely through the hole.
6. Child will lace the string through the holes to show the opposites.

Mount the lacing card activity sheet on cardboard to make it sturdy.
I used clear contact paper to provide more protection to my lacing card. After that I punched the holes.  On the final version of the activity sheet, I added black circles to help show where to punch.
My four year old son said, "I know how to do this Dad.  I do this kinda stuff at preschool."
This activity was based upon the e-book Three Ghost Friends: Learn About Opposites!

What are toddler busy bags?  They are quick activities that can be pulled out when a parent needs a few minutes to keep their toddler busy -- make lunch, go to the bathroom, talk on the phone, or check Pinterest! Keep all the materials in a bag so that they can be set up in a moment's notice or taken with you as a portable activity.
