Lacing Cards


Lacing is an excellent activity for developing fine motor skills, improving hand-eye coordination and concentration, and keeping little kids happily amused!

Print and cut out our lacing cards onto card or good printer paper. Laminate, and cut carefully around the edge. Using a single hole punch, punch holes evenly around the edges, just inside the solid line, following the shape as much or as little as is appropriate for the age of your child: bear in mind that younger children might need a simplified outline, while older children will be able to lace a more complicated design. Use a shoe lace or lengths of coloured wool (yarn) with the ends strengthened either with sticky tape or white glue (PVA) to thread the shapes. Alternatively capture some wool inside a small piece of pipe cleaner and bend it to form a "needle". Older children can use a large-eyed blunt needle and length of yarn.
