Do you want an activity to keep your toddler or preschooler busy? Try making some lacing cards.
Lacing cards are an excellent activity which will strengthen a toddler’s fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.
And make lacing cards yourself is super-fast and easy.
All you need is:
Old greeting or Christmas cards
Paper hole punch
Shoelaces (Dollar Store)
Find cards with pictures that will interest your child.
Glue the card together and allow it to dry completely.
Leave the card as-is or cut the card into a shape or design.
Use a hole punch to punch holes around the outside edge or around the design.
Tie a knot in the end of a shoelace or tie the shoelace to the card. Then, show your child how to thread the shoelace through the holes. Teach them the running stitch and the overcast stitch.
There are examples of cards using the running stitch and the overcast stitch.
It’s that easy!
