Apple Lacing Cards Supplies
The lacing cards are easy to print and use from home. All you need are these supplies to get started:
- Printer (I have this one)
- Lacing yarn
- One hole hole puncher
- Laminator or contact paper
HP OfficeJet Pro 8710 All-in-One Wireless Color Printer, HP Instant Ink or Amazon Dash replenishment ready (M9L66A), BlackHamilco White Cardstock Thick Paper 8 1/2 x 11Westcott 16451 8-Inch KleenEarth Recycled Scissors for Office and Home, BlackLGEGE 60 Pcs Colored Threading for Beading, Threading Lace Beading Cords Beading String(6 Colors)Single Hole Punch Metal Blue, 1/4” Hole Puncher with Soft Grip Handles for Paper and Crafts Round Circle Shape, for Kids and Adults, Also Available in Green, Pink, Red, Purple, Grey, 1 Pc – by EndayScotch Thermal Laminator Combo Pack, Includes 20 Letter-Size Laminating Pouches, Holds Sheets up to 8.9
You can make the cards durable and long-lasting by laminating them, so your child can use them over and over again. And don’t forget to punch the holes after! This makes them a great value for busy moms on a budget.
I have the HP printer 8710 but it’s not available anymore. It’s still running well for years now. Look for another HP Instant Ink-ready printer so that you can use their program to send you ink cartridges whenever your printer gets low on ink.
Lacing Cards Benefits
Not only are these cards fun and engaging for your children, but they also provide a great learning opportunity. With each apple card, you can discuss the different parts of an apple, such as the stem, the seeds, and the skin.
The lacing cards are also a great way to teach your child about apples and healthy eating. You can use the cards to start a discussion about the benefits of eating apples, the apple life cycle, how apples are grown and harvested, and even the different types of apples that are available.
This lacing activity can be a fun and engaging way to sneak in a little extra learning while your child is having a good time lacing up their cards.
Another great thing about these printable lacing cards is that they can easily be adapted for children of different ages and skill levels. For younger children, you can start with larger cards and thicker laces, and gradually work your way up to smaller cards and thinner laces as they develop their skills.

Bring apples into your homeschool with any of these fun apple books. See how they grow or how you can turn them into treats. We’re fans of apple bread and apple chips.
