Styrofoam Plate Sewing

Emily enjoys watching her grandma and me sew.  She can’t wait until she is able to create her own sewing projects too.  So I thought that this would be a fun way to practice, it is also great for developing fine motor skills. 

Styrofoam Plate Sewing 

First, I cut a long piece of yarn and taped it to the back of a styrofoam plate, as seen in the picture above.  Then I threaded a blunt tip yarn needle and demonstrated how to poke the needle into the plate, pull it through and come up the other side.  For this activity I did not pre poke the holes in the plate, I told Emily that she could do it wherever she wanted around the edge of the plate.

What a great idea to use a plate! We've done this once on a vegetable tray from the grocery store, but we don't get those very often - I never thought of plates - how simple! I'm sure we have some hanging around too - thanks for a great idea!
