Hi, it’s Peggy from the Educational Art Institute. Here today to show you a really wonderful craft activity that you can do with the children that is wonderful for fine motor coordination. It’s sewing but its not sewing the way you think of it was piece of material, sewing with the pattern. This is what we have here to sew it.
You can buy any of this material in any store, I don’t know exactly where you live. We have in our neighborhood, we have a Michael’s Art Supply Store. You can buy this kind o f hard plastic pieces of material with hole. Sometime you can use 0:50 find things with roles, with holes and you can cut this up to any size. You can have it large like this. You can have it a small one this size or you can even have a small one like this to be a bookmark.
Which ever size it is that you tried, make sure that you don’t give them a size that’s too large for them to do because then they just going to get frustrated and they’re not going to want to do it. And what you do is you get a couple of this yarns that are inexpensive and then you get hold of yarn needles. It’s much better if you can find the one that are very blond so the kinds won’t get their fingers prick.
But sometimes, you might have to do with ones that are a little bit sharp. And what you do is you thread, you make sure that you thread the needle and you’ve tied it for them and you basically are showing them the technique where they just going up, up and down and they have to follow that all around.
Now if they’re doing the edges and they want to just keeping down, and down, that’s okay also but they—its probably better to teach them up and down because this is the—just one ways only going to work by the edges. And then they go all around depending on what size you do it and when they’re ready they can change colors, they can pick any color so that they can choose to do the whole color. They can draw something in the middle and sew around it and this is an actual wonderful activity if the kids are board and they’re just sitting around at night, after they come from the school or in school.
It’s a wonderful and it’s an excellent activity for eye-hand coordination from motor coordination and the children absolutely love it and as I said, just make sure to cut it to fit the age of the child and they’ll just fly with it and you know, all they want to do is sew, sew, sew.
