Craft: 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 craft they will proudly
take home.


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!

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
cards they’ve made.
