A great way to get into the Christmas spirit and practice your fine motor skills are to use printable lacing cards. This is a great activity for your preschooler, toddlers can do some of the more simple lacing card activities as well.
I love this time of year when the holidays are on the horizon, it’s such an exciting time because you can bring the holiday season into your homeschool as well.
You can print these lacing cards out onto card stock and then laminate them or use contact paper to increase their durability. Then hole punch away. For younger students, I’d keep the number of holes on the lower side and you could space them further apart.
I created these fun lacing cards so that your child won’t realize that they are actually practicing a skill but are having fun playing with their lacing cards.
You can download your printable lacing cards here, I have 5 different pictures to choose from and they’re a whole lot of fun.
Printable lacing cards are a fun and frugal way to keep your preschooler occupied, they won’t even notice that they are refining a much needed skill.
