Alphabet Lacing Cards

Alphabet Lacing Cards
by Helen Royston


Instructions
Choose color cards or black and white cards. 

Print on cardstock OR print on paper and laminate.  Use a hole punch to make a small hole on each small dot.  Thread a quilting needle (blunt end, usually sold in plastic) and tie a knot at one end.  You could also use fun-tipped yarn or dip the end of a piece of yarn in wax to make it stiff (another option would be a shoelace).   

Show child how to sew in one hole and out the next to create the letter shapes.  Show them how to double back to make a solid line, if desired. 

The card can be unthreaded and reused another day.
