What age are lacing cards appropriate for?

Generally, lacing cards are best used for toddlers and children aged 3 and up.

How to make lacing cards:

It’s easy! First, print out the free lacing cards at the bottom of this post. I would very highly recommend printing them out onto white cardstock to ensure they are as durable as possible!

To add an extra level of durability, laminating the cards are also recommended after they are printed and cut out. This is the lamination machine I have and it definitely gets a ton of use.

One laminated and cut out, use a standard size hole punch to punch out all of the holes around the Halloween shapes.

Using yarn or string, begin weaving in and out through each hole. Think of it set of like sewing! Make your way all around the shape with the string, and then you can take it out and start again!

Lacing card tips:

Here are a few different types of string you can use for lacing cards:

  • Yarn
  • Embroidery thread
  • Shoelace
  • Twine
  • String

Tip: If your child is having trouble weaving something like yarn through the holes, you can wrap a small piece of tape around the edge to make sure it doesn’t fray and make lacing more difficult.

Favorite Printable Supplies:

These are a few of my favorite supplies that I use for printable games and activities:

  • White Cardstock: For most projects, I recommend printing onto cardstock. It is much more durable than standard printer paper and often produces a higher quality print.
  • Crayons: A staple in any crafting household. Crayola is always the top notch choice!
  • Kid Friendly Safety Scissors: These are perfect for little kids learning how to use scissors. They cut paper but not fingers or hair!
  • Glue Sticks: These disappearing purple glue sticks are by far my favorite! I love buying them in bulk since we use them so often!
  • Lamination Machine: Laminating printables are a great way to make them last longer. If you are planning on laminating to make games reusable, be sure to get a bunch of dry erase markers as well.
  • Dry Erase Pockets: Dry erase pockets are a great alternative to using a lamination machine when wanting to make printable games and activities reusable.
  • Printer: A high quality printer is always recommended for the best results. If you are in need of a printer this Brother Wireless Printer is a great choice.
