So, what are you waiting for? Let's make and lace a Paper Ice Skate for Winter!

Craft supplies you will need:

  • Ice Skate Template
  • White card stock
  • Construction paper
  • Black string

Craft instructions:

Drag the Ice Skate template to your desktop and print the Ice Skate on white card stock.

Using scissors, have the children cut out the Ice Skate and Ice Skate blade from the white card stock.

Next, have the children trace the Ice Skate Blade on a sheet of construction paper. We chose yellow construction paper for our Ice Skate Blade.

Once done, have the children glue the Ice Skate to the Ice Skate Blade.

Let dry.

When dry, help the children punch 4 holes in their Ice Skate.

Then, using black string, have the children lace up their Ice Skate as they would their shoe.

After they are finished lacing up their Ice Skate, have the children write their name on a craft stick and glue the craft stick to the back of their Ice Skate.

Lastly, have the children glue their Ice Skate to a piece of construction paper.

And, voila, the children have now practiced their fine motor skills with this Winter Ice Skate Lacing craft project! What an easy-to-make and fun Winter craft activity for preschool and kindergarten children!

While the kids are lacing their Ice Skate, play the Winter song for kids in the background.
