Teaching materials are insanely expensive and one of my missions with No Time For Flash Cards is to make learning materials, lesson plans, and share ideas that make teaching young children easier. This little lacing card is an inexpensive way to insert some Christmas spirit into your day while working on fine motor and hand-eye coordination skills. I started making my own lacing cards when I realized they were SO expensive and often had holes so close together it was hard for the children they appealed to successfully complete. I spaced out the holes and lowered the number of holes from most lacing cards to make it more accessible to use with toddlers and preschoolers.
