Sewing a bracelet!

Sewing continues.... Last week we sewed buttons on burlap.  While this was a a wonderful way to prepare for future sewing and strengthen fine motor skills and coordination, it really had nothing on sewing your own bracelet!  Boys and girls alike have requested this work and it has been in constant use during the morning.
The children first pick a strip of felt - the color of their choice- and put the needle through the black spot on the felt. 
With a little assistance the child begins to sew the button on. 
Taking a pair of scissors, they cut on a small line at the opposite end.
They then practice their buttoning skills and have a bracelet!!
