Sewing with plates!

Hello lovely people!

This is just a quick post about using polystyrene plates to teach sewing to younger children.  I was given lots of plates from a family member and I took these into school with a lot of blunt tapestry needles.  The plates are easily punctured with the needles and a bit of sellotape was used to secure the thread on the back of the plate.

One child made a face which I found very fun and creative!

 Some children stitched pictures of football shirts, hearts, flowers, faces etc and they all picked up the sewing very quickly.  This is a great activity to introduce children to sewing and very safe because they can't hurt themselves with the needles.
