Every week we share a fun and different tip or trick and this month it’s all about sewing!
This week I am sharing Tips for Sewing with Kids… what a great summer activity to get your kids involved in!
Tip #1 Gather and use the correct sewing tools.
Before setting your child down to learn to sew, be sure you have all the necessary sewing tools. It’s also a good idea to talk about the names of the tools and what they are used for.
Tip #2 Utilized hand sewing cards.
There are so many of these free printables online and they are easy to make yourself
too. This is a great hand-on activity that is also great for fine motor skills. You can even utilize this activity while on a road trip, airplane, or camping!
Tip #3 Learn the machine.
If your child will be sewing using a sewing machine, it’s important to teach about the parts of the machine
and how to safely use and operate it. This will eliminate future problems and create a much easier learning environment.
Tip #4 Sewing Camp!
Create a sewing camp
for your kid(s) or if you aren’t well versed in sewing, seek out and find a sewing camp or class that your kid(s) can take. They will be able to participate and get a hands-on learning experience with other kids who are learning the same skills.
