No I do not run a sweat shop in our school room. There’s just something enthralling about sewing to a three year old!

Such Concentration!

Such Concentration As He Threads!

The fine muscular control he gains through holding yes, an actual needle and threading it through chopped up ikea straws will help him in so many ways, like preparing his little fingers for holding a pen. Through sewing he learns to manipulate fine objects while being gentle in one hand and firm in the other, he learns to create patterns and see something he is creating come to fruition, and he only received a prick on the finger once.
