I love the simplicity of this project. These DIY cardboard lacing cards are perfect for younger children to practice they threading skills and improve fine motor skills. You can even take their weaving apart and re-use the cards over and over again. For older children, they can use the cards to make more intricate weaving patterns.
Cut cardboard shapes from your thick cardboard, we cut squares and hearts that were approximately 15 x 15cm. Using a single hole punch, punch holes around the edge of your cards. We made 2 rows 1.5 and 2.5 cm from the edge of the cards. Thread your large tapestry needle and begin making pretty patterns weaving through the holes on your card. You could also add in wooden beads.
