  • Step 1
    Step 1: All you need to do is secure the burlap in the embroidery hoop and cut a 12"+ strand of yarn. If your kiddo is older, they can thread the needle, or you can thread it for your tot. Tie a knot at the other end and let them get to work making whatever sort of design they'd like.
  • Step 2: Extension Activities for Older Children: offer large buttons to sew onto the burlap use index cards with simple shapes for them to re-create on the burlap
