Lacing cards have always been a huge hit in our house. We’ve made all kinds from basic shapes to leaves and other fun pictures but never have we made one in which the lacing is part of the picture, until now that is 🙂
To go along with the rest of our Jack and the Beanstalk activities, we decided that adding our own “strings” to the golden harp would be a whole lot of fun and we were right!
This printable harp lacing card turned out to be one of my preschooler’s absolute favorites and we have laced and re-laced this thing more times than I count already.
If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to add a little fine motor skills practice into your day, this is it!
It’s super simple, comes together in less than 10 minutes and your kids are going to love it.
To make your own, just download and print the golden harp printable below (we always print our lacing cards on card stock as they are much more durable that way).
When you go to cut it out, make sure that you cut the inner portion of the harp out as well.
Laminating the card is optional but it does make it last a lot longer, especially when lots of little hands want a turn 🙂
Once you have it laminated, use a hole punch to make holes in the harp where your strings will go and have your little one give it a go!
For this card we used white ribbon and it turned out to be the perfect size and was easy for little fingers to grasp. To start your card you can either tie a knot into one end of your string or ribbon or just use a small piece of tape to attach it to the back of your card.
Either way, you’ll end up with a fun golden harp and a fantastic fine motor workout!
