DLTK's Holiday Crafts for Kids
spring lacing
Spring Lacing Crafts

Lacing projects are a great craft for preschoolers and kindergarten children to complete during any holiday.  The lacing gives them fine motor skill practice and practice tying knots and bows (shoelaces!)  The large blank area in the center gives the kids the chance to 'get creative' by further decorating with paper cutouts, stickers or crayons.

There are a few different templates to choose from.

Specific Instructions PLUS Templates:


cloud templateCloud:  lace with a running stitch or a blanket stitch around the edge of the cloud - silver or grey is a good color (every cloud has a silver lining), but white or blue would work nicely too.

You can tie a bow anywhere on the cloud and draw a face on the cloud if you like.

flower templateFlower:  lace with a running stitch in a circle around the center of the flower.  Tie a bow at the bottom.  Green wool or ribbon would be nice.  You can color the outside of the flower and draw a face in the middle if you like.  

You could also lace around the outside of the flower instead of or as well as the center, using any color you like (red, blue, pink, purple, etc).  A blanket stitch would be nice for this..
