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.

This list of supplies is all that you need to get started with this simple activity for kids.
Print out the lacing cards onto paper or cardstock, laminate them, and then cut them out with your scissors. Use the one hole puncher to make holes on each lacing card. Use the shoelace or string and have your child lace them around the edges.
Voila, that’s all it takes to make your own lacing cards at home.
Find some great winter Olympic books to complement these lacing cards. We have loved watching the Olympics as a family and this sparked a lot of discussions on the different events and the countries where the competitors are from.
