Lacing is a wonderful fine motor activity for young children to engage in. And to keep it fresh, it’s a good idea to mix up the lacing cards you provide your children periodically. As we move into fall, I thought it would be fun to create a set of Fall Leaf Lacing Cards so your little ones can work on their manual dexterity while enjoying the beautiful colors of fall.
Note: For more leaf activities, see my Botany Unit Study page.
My Fall Leaf Lacing Cards printable features three different styles of leaves in four different colors each.
Here is a sneak peak at the lacing cards included in the download:
For your lacing cards to be durable, I highly recommend laminating them. We own this awesome home laminator and really enjoy it. After printing and laminating, cut out each of the planets. Then use a hole punch where indicated by the black dots. After you’ve punched holes, show your child how to lace the holes with yarn or string.
