Preschool Craft: Simple Recycled Sewing Cards

This simple children’s craft is a great opportunity for your little ones to color, sew, and work on their hand-eye coordination. When finished, they will have a beautiful sewing card craft they will proudly take home.


Preschool Craft: Simple Recycled Sewing Cards

You’ll Need:

  • Empty cereal boxes,
  • Coloring book pictures,
  • coloring supplies,
  • glue,
  • scissors,
  • single hole punch,
  • yarn, and
  • cellophane tape.
  • Ahead of time, cut open and flatten empty cereal boxes to use as backing for sewing cards.

In class, have children color coloring book pictures. If you have coloring books with pictures from the Bible, that’s even better! You can check on Pinterest for free Bible coloring pages.

Glue colored pictures onto the flattened cereal boxes. Cut the cardboard to fit the picture. Punch holes 2 inches apart along each side.

Give each child 1 yard of yarn. Help children tie a knot in the yarn at one end. Using 1/4-inch of cellophane tape, help children each wrap the other end tightly to make threading easier.

Kids will have lots of fun sewing in and out of the holes on the sewing cards they’ve crafted.
