A great way to incorporate some fun fall elements to your homeschool are to create your own printable lacing cards and I have a fall themed one which is the first of many to come.
If you need help with how to make your own lacing cards don’t worry they are super easy to do with some different options.
Lacing cards are a great way for your little one to practice their fine motor skills or if you want to teach your older children how to sew. It’s wonderful practice.
Lacing Cards for Fall
My toddler loves using these and using a shoe lace to thread through the holes, she likes to use a random pattern. If my son works on these then he focuses more on a consistent pattern, either always going from the bottom or alternating by entering from the top and then the bottom.
Fall always calls for apple and pumpkin themes so these are a great addition to your fall studies. I know we enjoy visiting the pumpkin patch and picking out our own pumpkins so this is a great way to weave those themes into your homeschool. If you’re apple picking you can discuss the colors and types of apples you’ve found or eat. You can also go into how they are grown and other products they are used in.
If you’re discussing leaves you can discuss what tree they came from and why they fall in the autumn season as they prepare for winter. You can also discuss the different parts of leaves and how they get their nutrients.
