Make Your Own Lacing Cards
Lacing cards are pictures on cardboard or wood that have holes around the edges. Then a string is used to weave through the holes.
The purpose is to help the young child to develop fine motor skills with their fingers and is the beginning motions for learning how to sew later in life.
The child may need some help with what to do. Show them how you go over the edge and through the hole to weave through the holes.
Once the card is sewn all the way around, then you can unstring it so they can do it again.
Make as many different ones as you want.
This makes a nice quiet activity to use when you are waiting somewhere or in a meeting such as at church.
