Follow the patterns or make your own—there are lots of ways to play! Front/Back Tip: The front side doesn’t require pattern cards, so it’s the easiest way to begin! Add in the pattern cards to use with the back side. Match the shapes: (no pattern cards) With the front side of Minnie facing up, ask the child to match the shapes shown on the lacing panel, attaching the correct buttons with one of the laces. Match the shapes and colors: (pattern cards) Choose a pattern card and ask the child to observe the pattern. Ask the child to replicate the pattern on the back side of Minnie, attaching the correct buttons with matching laces. Ask the child to lace the border of the dress to match the pattern card too.
