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
- 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.
Note: I punched a few more cards in some of the cards for my student. You can do this if you want, but you don’t have to.
Thread a plastic quilting needle and tie a knot at one end. You could also use a shoelace (easy!), 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. You may want to store the cards, yarn, and plastic needle in a giant plastic bag.
