Ernie has never been interested in this before, but when she saw me hand sewing on a lazy Sunday morning* she begged to sew too. I traced cookie cutters onto a piece of cardboard, hole-punched around the edges, and gave her a big piece of yarn tied to a bead (so as to not pull through) on one end and taped on the other.
These stay in our church "quiet bag" for during services, but now that I know she's into hand sewing, I want to make lots more cards! She's not terribly interested in what she's sewing, so it would be fun to just find nice pictures to laminate and punch holes around. The pictures could also be mod-podged onto chip board or something sturdy.
*When your kids get up around 6, church starts at 12:15, and you try to encourage quiet Sunday activities...yeah, it's long and lazy. And very, very nice.
