Hand sewing activities and ideas.
Corduroy is among nearly every children's literature collection. A favorite for nearly 50 years, it tells the story of one little bear's quest for a friend, despite missing his button.

Teach kids to sew using burlap and yarn for an easy first lesson in the mechanics of sewing for preschoolers and up. Learning how to sew on burlap is a great sewing lesson for beginners. Sewing with kids on burlap is a fun fine motor activity to practice before trying more advanced forms of handwork. This technique is often used in Waldorf, Montessori, and homeschool education.
