St. Patrick’s Day Preschool Freebie. Fine motor skills are important for young children. Strong fine motor skills help young children develop the control they need for proper pencil grip. They also help children have better handwriting.
One fun way to help your child build those fine motor skills is to practice with lacing. It takes a lot of control to line up the string and pull it through the hole.
I’ve created a fun set of St. Patrick’s Day lacing cards that are perfect for the month of March! Your kids are going to love the leprechauns and St. Patrick’s Day icons featured in this fun pack.

Print these pages out on cardstock and laminate them for durability. Hole punch the white circles. Knot a string for your little one, and let them start lacing the cards.
You could also cover the cards with contact paper before hole punching them if you don’t have a laminator.
Don’t worry if your child struggles to “follow the dots” at first. It’s okay. Start by focusing on just getting the string in the holes.
As your child masters that, then work on going around the shape in order. But, don’t worry about whether they’re lacing it properly (like hand-stitching). That will come later. Just focus on progressing from one hole to the next no matter what the string looks like as they do.
Finally, as they have more control and more understanding of the process as a whole, you can focus on “up through the first hole, and down through the next” until they can make it all the way around the shape in a natural progression.
