This shamrock threading card is designed to help your children practice and develop some fine motor skills, such as:

  • Hand-eye coordination – to be able to understand what they are seeing and get their hands to go where they want them to
  • Finger strength – to be able to hold the lace and push it through the holes
  • Hand dominance – developing and strengthening the skill of one of their hands
  • Finger dexterity – the ability to move fingers in different ways and use different fingers for different tasks

They can also help children practice patience and concentration as they may find it tricky at first and offer a great chance to talk about the different holidays we celebrate.

You’ll probably want to laminate it to make  it stronger. 

Then use a hole punch to punch out the holes around the edges.

You can make the threading card easier by punching fewer holes, or more difficult by adding a few more.

That’s pretty much it, just grab some long laces, or yarn and let your little learners practice their fine motor skills in a fun way.

If you are using yarn, you may want to toughen the ends by dipping in some PVA glue and leaving to dry first.
