threading and sewing
This practical life lesson is designed for 3 to 6-year old children to guide them about using a needle and thread.

Sewing with a needle is a sensory activity for children that aims to develop order, concentration, coordination, and independence. This activity enables the child to practice eye-hand coordination and fine motor skills.

Materials required for this activity:
1. A needle
2. Thread
3. A cloth to sew
4. Few beads

Learning to sew helps build a positive impact on a child’s character development. It also provides educational, physical, and mental benefits in an exciting and fun way.

Invite the child to sew cloth with a needle and let them use their imagination to create beautiful designs. They can sew buttons, fix their toys, or make a nice and original gift for their friend.
