You cannot imagine how children like sewing. From my experience of working with children, sewing is one of their favorite activities. Every week when we ask the children what they would like to do during After School Club, they choose from baking, making(people) puppets with paper rolls tubes , colouring, playing on computers, playing games outside, and sewing. Because I work with children from age 4 to 11 years old I try to making sewing so everybody can enjoy it.
I decided to make this flower because it is very simple and they can sew and decorate it too. They really liked it.
What you need:
A white card paper, scissors, hole puncher,color felt pens, colored yarn, a pencil, plastic needle.
How to do it:
Draw a shape of big flower on your white card paper ( you can some find big flower shapes on Google images)
Cut out the flower shape and make the holes all around the edge of your flower. Let the children do the sewing. When they finish just let them have fun decorating it.
