I recently stumbled upon this brilliant activity when I went looking for my daughter one morning. I found her in grandma’s sewing room happily stacking sewing spools.
When my daughter found her grandma she was busy working on sewing a new dress for my daughter. When she entered the room grandma knew exactly what to do. She put down a bin of sewing spools and told her to stack them.
You can always count on a grandma to know how to keep a little one busy. This activity kept my daughter entertained for almost an hour, and my daughter never stays busy that long!
My family spends most of the summer down LA staying with my father and my step-mom while my husband works as an ocean lifeguard. Since that morning she has returned day after day to stack grandmas sewing spools while grandma sews. Any activity that keeps my little one happily busy day after day is an activity worth sharing.
Sewing Spool Stacking Activity
If you are someone that likes to keep your child busy this activity is for you – especially if you like to sew like grandma does. All you need is a bunch of sewing spools and a willing participant.
- Sewing Spools
- Set out a bunch of spools and have your child try to stack as many as they can.
- When they fall start over – It’s that simple.
If you have spools of several sizes start with the largest one’s only first. Once your child get the hang of it, add in other spools of various sizes to increase the difficulty.
Stacking sewing spools is a fun activity that develops hand-eye coordination, focus, and concentration. All you need is a few sewing spools and a willing participant. Have your child give it a try the next time you’d like to finish a project or get something done.
