Winter Games Printable Lacing Cards
One of the best reasons that we love to do this activity is because it’s one that they can do all on their own. Even though they can do it without me, I still stay close so that I’m there just in case they need any help.
We also like to do this activity while we’re talking about some winter sports or maybe even catching one or two on the TV. This kind of helps brings it all into perspective so that the kids can then associate the sport with people doing it in real-time and they really love that aspect.
I have here more printable lacing cards for kids.
