maybe I can teach them to sew- Is almost 2yrs and 4 yrs to young? lol

NO. They can "sew" punch cards. This develops fine motor skills and keeps them occupied "sewing " with mommy[/quote]

I had to look up what a punch card was. I am glad I did because at first I was wondering how my little Makayla was going to reach the foot pedal on my machine lol

My grandkids love doing those punch cards!! Basically it's hard cardboard or light weight wood and they run a shoe string around in and out of the holes. I found kits at Michael s they really love! :-P They are stuffed animals, hearts, or pin cushions. They come in a kit with punched holes and they thread yard thru the holes, stuff it add eyes or other embellishments and have something to show for their hard work. Now I take felt and make them myself. It's lots of fun for the girls. ;-)

You can make these out of card stock or the back of note pads.
Find a simple picture and color it. glue it the card stock and cut out outline. Then using a hole punch, punch out the outline about 1/4 inch from edge of card...
They have plastic needles for children at Hobby Lobby use yard as the thread.

That's what I do!! The ones that I make out of felt let them take a project home, or give as a gift to mom or dad.
Great minds think alike!! :roll: :lol: :roll: :lol:

OMG look here at what just came in the mail. the picture is kinda blurry, been having problems with my old camera, guess i need a new one. ok, there is a kit for a santa pillow, needle grabber, five fat quarters (beautiful colors), a rubber bobbin holder,a Christmas stocking pattern, a beautiful card, a fons & porter pin cushion, a chaco blue liner, and a decal for a window in house or car saying "i make quilts". could not believe all this stuff, what a great angel i have. i love it all of course. i think i'll put that decal on my car as i just started longarm quilting 4 months ago. thank you so much, have a great day and God Bless.
