Sewing cards are a timeless activity that keep little hands busy. They’re also fantastic for developing fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination!

These printable sewing cards are perfect for the holidays and can be used several different ways, depending on the age, ability, and experience of each child.

Supplies:

  • white cardstock
  • yarn or embroidery floss
  • scotch tape (or a large, plastic needle)
  • hole punch (standard or 1/8″)

Directions:

Beginner
Print the sewing cards on cardstock. Cut them out, and use a standard sized hole punch to punch the marked holes. Wrap a small piece of Scotch tape around the end of a piece of yarn, and they’re ready to sew.

Intermediate
Follow the same directions as above, but punch the holes with a 1/8″ punch. This will give the child a smaller target to hit with the string.

Advanced
Follow the intermediate directions. When the child has completed one loop around the shape, have her go back for a second round, filling in the empty spaces between stitches. This might be done best with a large, plastic child’s sewing needle.

Beyond Advanced
If your child is comfortable with sewing and using a sharper needle, you could thread embroidery floss through a needle. Then have him sew without you punching the holes, allowing the needle to make the hole in the paper.
