Why use lacing cards?
Lacing cards help kids practice their fine motor skills, they have to use their pincer grasp to hold the shoe lace and to weave it in and around the lacing card.
They have to maneuver the card in their hand as the move around with the lacing. They can form a pattern weaving over and under the card or do it in a random fishing.
It gives your young child an activity to focus on for a few minutes while developing their hand coordination to buy you some time to work with older kids.
Lacing cards are also easy to transport and don’t have a lot of pieces that can get lost.
