Fine Motor- TP Roll Sewing

TP Roll Sewing
Sewing is such a great life skill. It is one that I like to teach to my kids as early as possible. The basics are the foundation for writing, problem solving, and creative thinking. its true in the late 90’s there was a study done regarding children learning to sew and what benefits might be found.The study revealed that children ages 8 to 12 showed elevated creativity after sewing a simple project. Children who sew during these critical years of development show increased creativity and self-esteem and appear to build skills in creative problem solving and perseverance.

Materials Needed:
Empty clean TP rolls
hole punch
ribbon or yarn
Pipe cleaner

Directions:
1. Use the hole puncher to punch holes all around the tp roll. Fold the tp roll so you can punch through the center area as well.
2. Tie off your ribbon or yarn to one of the bottom holes.
3. Take the other end of your ribbon or yarn and tie it to a pipe cleaner.I cut my pipe cleaner down so it was shorter and easier to handle. Fold the pipe cleaner over and twist to that it resembles a large needle.
4. Let children explore
