Small children love to learn new things every day, and what better way to learn than through easy and practical activities. Card lacing for instance is a great way to learn how to lace and tie your shoes. Lacing cards promotes fine motor skills in young children as well as improve hand-eye coordination.
You can find lacing cards in your local preschool supplies store, arts and crafts store or online in sites like amazon.com or michaels.com. You can also make cards using recycled materials such as greeting cards, magazines and news paper pictures. The cards pictures can be anything: bunnies, shoes, flowers or even cars. You can even use cards related to seasons or a particular theme. the best part is that they can be used for both boys and girls.

CUT bottom part of the card and glue in place
