It is Thursday, which san mean only one thing – we have another printable for you all! This week, we have a little educational tool for you all to use; lacing cards.

We have already done a few educational printables on the blog, and these are gorgeous. The are designed as numbers to help your children both with number recognition, and also with fine motor skills.

To use them, all you really need to do is find yourself a shoelace, ribbon, or a bit of wool, print them out and cut out the holes, or push them out with scissors, and then let you children loose on lacing them. There are two numbers to a sheet of A4 so they should be big enough for you.

If you are feeling particularly adventurous, you can punch out the holes after cutting out the picture with a hole punch too. This will make the holes a lot cleaner for your child to use.

Remember, if you are using ribbon, it would probably be wise to pop a bit of sticky tape around the end of the ribbon so that it doesn’t fray while your child is lacing the numbers. This way if they do struggle a little with the activity, then their ribbon stays intact.

An added bonus is that you can also help your children with number order, and counting as we have popped a few items on there for you corresponding to the number; just as a little further educational trick you can using alongside the lacing.


We hope the kids like this lacing activity – we have a lot more printables on the blog, as well as some other great ideas for other activities beyond our traditional printables, from crafts to cooking! we like to keep little hand busy, and big brains calmer where we can :-D
