Alphabet Lacing Cards Supplies Needed

You just need a few simple supplies to get started with the Alphabet Lacing Cards.

  • plastic quilting needle or a shoelace
  • yarn
  • cardstock
  • laminator, if desired (to make the alphabet lacing cards sturdy for multiple uses)
  • hole punch

Alphabet Lacing Cards Instructions

Choose color cards or black and white cards. 

Print on cardstock OR print on paper and laminate. 

Cut around the letters.

Use a hole punch to make a hole on each small dot. 

Thread a plastic quilting needle 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. Alternatively, you could also use 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, stored, and reused another day.
