My kids are loving the snow around here so it’s a great time to break out these winter lacing cards to go along with all the other learning we are doing as well. These are a cute set and include a snowflake, reindeer, gingerbread man, and more.
We’re spending December doing some more hands-on activities and reading Christmas books and fun projects as we take a break from our regular curriculum. I love this time of year and there are so many activities that you can do to bring them into the Christmas spirit.
I love spending time cuddling up on the couch with my little ones as we read a narration from our Christmas books, we spend more time crafting and doing more drawing and painting as well. As long as we get our basics down like reading, math, and writing, I don’t sweat the other stuff during this month unless it’s something the kids want to do.
Printable lacing cards are super easy to put together and you can have your preschooler or kindergartner use them to practice their fine motor skills. You could also use them to teach your child how to sew. I don’t know how to sew beyond the basics but would love it if my kids could be able to do the basics eventually.

Winter Lacing Cards
I’m also a huge fan of these winter lacing cards because they really help the kids work on their fine motor skills as well. (and it’s also really cute watching them focus and get more and more confidence every time they make a lace happen and succeed!)
These lacing cards help them with their hand-eye coordination as well and once they complete it, they have a really great winter activity that they can display proudly for all to see.
These cards are festive, fun, and adorable and certain to bring joy to their hearts and minds once they accomplish them.
Winter Lacing Card Supplies
All you need are the simple supplies listed below to get started.
Print out the template onto paper or cardstock, laminate it or if you don’t have a laminator, cover it with contact paper and use the hole punch to create the holes. Grab a ribbon or shoe string to use to thread the cards. I like to tie one end so it doesn’t get pulled all the way through as they work on it which can make it frustrating for little ones.
Recommended Lacing Cards
If you’d rather not make your own, try these wooden lacing cards that will definitely last after your kids use them. We own these and the kids play with them over and over again. They’re just really cute and user-friendly and I can’t rave about them anymore! (These would also make really cute gift ideas for friends with kids that are this age as well!)
