I found these felt hearts at Michaels
and thought they would be perfect to practice sewing.
I attached a plastic needle to the end of piece of yarn
and tied the other end of yarn to the heart.
It's a great activity to involve the grown up.
The little ones need the extra set of hands to hold the heart for them
while they concentrate on putting the needle through
I left the piece of yarn long so they could sew all the way
around the heart.
But it gets in the way and tangles.
Again with an adult there they can help guide the yarn
A few of the older children were able to continue sewing on their own
after their parent got them started.
