More Lacing Cards

Our church has a donation board that lists items that they would like to have for different ministries. Generally it is stuff for the kid’s programs (we have LOTS of kids!). A while back I saw that they wanted some lacing cards for the kids. I told one of the children’s leaders that we could easily and cheaply make our own. You may remember this post where I showed you how I made some for Little Monkey.

I had recently seen some other blogs where people had bought pre-cut foam shapes and just added the holes for lacing. I was having a hard time finding shapes that were cut out of thick enough foam. If the foam is too thin, it will not last very long. I came across some foam wands at the Dollar Tree and thought I would give them a try. I tried taking out the wand part but it just messed up the foam section. So I decided to cut down the wand to make it smaller and cut off part of the ribbon.

Lacing Cards!

Lacing Cards!

I made these yesterday and then went and picked up some more supplies to make a few more! I had some star shaped ones but had some issues with the holes and so those are out! Hopefully these will last a while before we need to make more. I am going to make a few more and try to space out the holes a little more (kinda like on the yellow heart one) to make it easier for the younger kids!

Here are the rest of them! I wasn’t too sure about the crowns, but I figured we could make them work. (Crown of thorns, Kings in the Bible, etc.) I guess we’ll see what the children’s workers think!

More Lacing Cards Done!

Oh and if you are wondering about cost…
3pack of Foam Wands at the Dollar Tree $1 each
8pack of shoelaces at the Dollar Tree $1 (gives you 16 laces since you only need one per card!)

So it comes out to about 39cents per lacing card!
