Make Your Own Preschool Lacing Cards
Lacing Cards make great preschool fine motor activities! Strong fine motor skills are important for our daily functioning. Preschoolers need strong fingers and hands to perform a variety of important activities from manipulating writing utensils to zipping jackets, so it’s essential that we give our preschoolers enough hands-on practice. Lacing takes a lot of effort for those tiny muscles, and it’s an excellent tool for strengthening dexterity, hand-eye coordination, and the critical pincer grasp.
Below you will find several low cost ways to make your own lacing cards! DIY Lacing cards are easy to make, and a simple way to create your own thematic fine motor activity that aligns with the different themes that your preschoolers will study throughout the year.
