Lacing projects are a great craft for preschoolers and kindergarten children to complete during any holiday.  The lacing gives them fine motor skill practice and practice tying knots and bows (shoelaces!)

Specific Instructions PLUS Templates:


apple

Apple:  lace with a running stitch or a blanket stitch around the edge of the apple, skipping the stem.  This is a perfect template for lacing two together to make a 'pouch' that you can slip autumn poems, drawings, sayings, etc into.

For a more advanced project, trace the template onto red fun foam twice.  Use green felt or paint to add a stem.  Lace the fun foam together to make a purse.  Make a purse strap from a long piece of wool or ribbon that you can braid and/or add beads to.

Drumstick:  lace with any type of stitch around the meaty part of the drumstick (running stitch or blanket stitch would both be nice).  Tie a bow where the bone is.  White, brown, yellow or black wool or ribbon would be nice.
