Sewing

Yes, the title says “sewing”. Oh, you didn’t think that could be an art form? Have you ever taken a good look at a quilt? What about our flag? If Betsy Ross hadn’t perfected her art, who knows what our flag might look like today?

This form of art doesn’t just have to be for girls either. Historically, men have mostly been tailors. Besides there is great value in a boy knowing how to sew for himself.

If you are a seamstress yourself, you can save your scrap fabric to give to your children to use. They can start out making doll clothes which is how many of our grandmothers started learning to sew. Boys might prefer something like this monster hat. Girls and boys alike will enjoy this Back Pack Shirt. You might be surprised at the works of art your kids can come up with using a needle and thread and some fabric!
