A variation on the straw and cotton ball races…great hand strength activity!
Each year we introduce the children to sewing. We start with these hearts and move on to sewing buttons. It is so lovely to sit side by side with the children and sew. There is a definite meditative quality about it. There are always a couple of children, typically difficult to engage in small motor activities, who are really “pulled in” by the sewing. That is lovely as well!
