My first grader wants to learn how to sew. She loves to create and wants to add sewing to her list of craft skills.
Unfortunately, I don’t sew. At all. Once, a couple decades ago, I signed up for a sewing class and at the end of the 6 weeks hadn’t even finished cutting out the pieces and had to pass the project off to my grandmother to finish for me.
So she was thrilled when Alex Toys sent us their My Sewing Kit to try! When she saw that the kit contained everything she needed to make 4 projects she decided that she would make one of the stuffed animals to donate to another child.
The kit came with picture instructions which had me a little nervous, but worked out perfectly for her. She was able to look at the pictures to see exactly what she had to do at each step.
She was able to follow the instructions on her own with minimal assistance from me and finish the stuffed hedgehog in one afternoon.
And ended up with a very cute stuffed animal to donate to another child!
I’m so excited to see that focusing on acts of kindness this year is making an impression on my kids!
