Learning to sew is an important home life skill. Teach kids to sew a line by hand using burlap and yarn for a simple beginning lesson in embroidery. Teaching kids to sew is an easy homeschool learning project for preschoolers, elementary aged kids, tweens and teens. It is a fine motor activity that will help prepare the hand for writing and more detailed handwork projects. Sewing with kids is a fun and easy learning activity found in Waldorf and Montessori education.
