Step 1:

Have your child start by tracing the figure 8 with their finger.

Step 2:

Have your child start to use the included stylus and trace the figure 8.

Step 3:

Start incorporating the maples. Start with one marble and increase the intensity by adding additional marbles.  They can also hold the board with both hands and title the board to roll the Mables through the figure 8 without dropping the marbles or going outside the figure 8. 

Kath Brown, M.Ed., a renowned brain expert and author of the popular "Educate your Brain", talks about the many benefits of tracing the figure 8.  She notes that "many people find that over time reading and writing are easier after doing Lazy 8's for just a few minutes."  You can review her website at
