Each week Mom On Dealz brings us a craft that is fun, educational, and frugal! Lacing activities are excellent ways to improve fine motor skills and kids love them!

Fall Lacing Fun

Materials:
Cardstock, Poster board, or Paper
Single Hole Punch
Ribbon
Scissors
Pencil, Crayons, Other Decorating Items

Directions:
1. Draw and cut out desired fall shape (football, leaf, apple, pumpkin, leaf, ear of corn, acorn, etc).


2. Punch holes around the edge of shape about 1 inch from the side and 1 inch spaced apart.
3. Wrap tape around each end of your ribbon to help make the activity easier.
4. Have your child lace the ribbon through the holes of the shape.

Educational Activities:
-Language Arts: 1. Write descriptive words or draw pictures of things you see during Fall (We practiced writing L for leaf on our shape). 2. Make up fun and rhyming Fall songs and sing them while your child laces. Then have them ID the rhyming words. Example given below.
-Science: Discuss weather changes that Fall brings and discuss the shapes and forms of the common natural objects of Fall (leaves, etc).
-Math: Create a pattern in the middle of your shape (such as circle, heart, triangle, circle, heart, triangle, etc).
