Printable Lacing Cards: Numbers 0-10
Fine motor skills need practice and learning numbers takes practice, so voila. I made some number lacing cards for my little guy.

I printed ours on heavyweight cardstock and laminated them for extra durability. Then I cut them apart and used my handy unconventional hole punch.
To make the lacing strings, I cut lengths of yarn. I clipped toothpicks, added a dot of glue in the center and tied a knot around the middle. This prevented the yarn from being pulled through the first hole.
At the other end of the yarn, I used clear tape to carefully and tightly wrap the end to prevent fraying and make threading the yarn through the holes a little easier.
Now all that was left to do was hand over the cards to my youngest son. I had him start each card at the star and end at the colored hole.
He concentrated so hard to weave the yarn in and out of the holes and was so proud to finish a card. I love the combination of math and fine motor practice he gets with these cards!
