Sewing encourages fine motor skills
I used to run a sewing club in a school.
I have found that both boys and girls are keen to learn to sew, an activity that encourages patience, fine motor skills, imagination and problem solving skills. Commonly sewing is not started with children until they are a little older, but I found that 5 and 6 year olds really enjoyed my clubs and could achieve a good standard.
The fine motor skills of one particular child improved dramatically, he loved to sew and was determined to get the needle doing what he wanted it to. His teacher was really pleased as she'd previously been unable to engage him in an activity like it.
