Penguin Lacing Cards

Who doesn’t love penguins? These penguin lacing cards are adorable and some of our favorite movies and documentaries have penguins in them. For our book this month, we own Penguin’s Big Surprise, and it’s such a cute story about a big brother and a little baby sister penguin.

I read this story to my son before my daughter was born and he really took to this story. He began asking questions about the baby in mommy’s tummy. My daughter is 4 now so this was ages ago but my daughter now enjoys reading this book with me. She’s been asking for a baby sister lately so I guess it was a timely choice.

You’ll love these other penguin activities for kids.

I created penguin printable lacing cards for my daughter to use after we read the book. She loves lacing cards even though she hasn’t completely mastered them.

The best part is she loves to use these lacing cards over and over again.

Are you a huge fan of penguins too? You’ll love any of these penguins books so that you can jump inside the world of penguins to see what these little guys are up to.

I know I always mention how important books are to the learning process but I’m so passionate about this! Reading is a wonderful way to have everyone working together and learning and engaged in a topic.

We love books because no matter what, we can all snuggle up together and enjoy the reading process. This is a time that we’re opening our brains and putting in information to help us learn and grow.
