|Lacing cards needn't be expensive; just make your own from durable paper plates!|
This apple themed lacing card is so easy to craft. The only supplies you will need: a durable paper plate, makers, some twine and a hole punch. Draw your apple outline onto the front side of your paper plate. Then punch holes around the apple and number each hole so that your child may use the activity as a counting exercise as well. Then color the apple bright red and the stem brown and the leaves a vivid green. Add a piece of twine that is long enough to string all of the way around the paper plate's circumference. I knotted a small plastic bead to one end of my twine and strung it through the first hole (1.) Then I taped the twine firmly in place with a transparent tape so that it would be held in the proper position for stringing.
