It’s that time of the week again, Toddler Tuesday! This is still a pretty new weekly meme around here and I would love for you all to join in on the fun and help spread the word that I am doing it every week. So how does it work? It’s easy! Just link up or leave a comment with your fun toddler activities, memories and all things toddler friendly!
So this week in keeping with the Birthday Bash Event theme I wanted to give you a fun craft to repurpose all of those pretty Birthday cards your child gets each year. People spend money on these adorable cards and then what do we do with them? Usually we throw them away. This is a fun way to save them and give them new life!
We will be making sewing cards with them! Do you remember those from when you were little? I sure do and I remember them being quite fun! Kids get to practice their fine motor skills while “sewing” on their cards.
For this project you will need:
- Cards (or if it isn’t Birthday time yet you can use heavy construction paper)
- Masking Tape
- Paper hole punch
Simply punch out holes with your hole puncher in whatever shape you like. Then take the yarn (make sure it is long enough to go in and out through all of the holes) and tie it to one hole and on the opposite end you will make the “needle”. Take your masking tape and tear off about an inch long piece. Then just wrap it tightly around the end of the yarn to make it stiff so it can easily go through the holes.
Then your kids can go to town with their sewing skills! Have fun with them! Make sure if your child is younger (like Danika is) to supervise them when they use these as they can become strangulation hazards with the long yarn. I’m always very vigilant about hazards like that! Put them up when you aren’t around.
