Teach your child to sew with these fun crafts

Does your child know how to sew? Do you? Members of older generations learned how to sew as a basic life skill but many adults today have never acquired the valuable tool of hand sewing. Sewing offers more than the ability to mend a torn shirt or repair a button. In addition to being a practical activity, hand sewing helps little ones develop fine motor skills and patience.

Try one of these beginner projects to get started.

While working on any of these projects, be sure to talk to your child about the basics of sewing safety, particularly when it comes to those sharp pins and needles.
