Printable lacing cards for kids are a wonderful way to help your child practice their fine motor skills. Not to mention they are a frugal way to learn as well.
Don’t run out of fun preschool activities for your young learners at home!
DIY lacing cards for kids will keep them entertained and teach them important hand-eye coordination skills! Print out colorful illustrations of animals such as a penguin or owl. Cut the images to create fun shapes.
You can print out each set of printable lacing cards, laminate them or cover them in contact paper, hole punch them, and hand them to your child with some laces or yarn. I always make sure that the string is not too long and that they are supervised when doing any lacing activities.
We use our lacing cards over and over until they get destroyed, my daughter loves them.
The fine motor practice is great because you can bring in different themes for each unit to change things up but they are still practicing their fine motor skills.
Printable Lacing Cards for Kids Supplies
- A printer (I have this one and love it)
- Paper or cardstock
- laminator or contact paper
- a hole puncher
Print the lacing card out onto paper or cardstock. Use the laminating sheet and laminate it. Use the hole puncher to punch holes into the lacing cards.
If you don’t have a laminator, you could cover your lacing cards with contact paper and then punch a hole in them. They just wouldn’t be as sturdy as using a laminator.
Want to save on ink? Try the HP Instant Ink program to save money on ink. I have the HP 8710 which is discontinued, but it has a scanner and copying feature which is super handy as a homeschooler. I’ve been super happy with my HP printer for our homeschool needs.
