What you need:
For younger ones, I suggest making fewer larger holes and using a plastic needle. Or you can also use a hole punch and yarn, rather than the needle and thread.
For the older kids that can safely handle and be successful using a needle and thread, simply download and print templates. Or if you are feeling extra crafty you can make some of your own. And if you are feeling, super-duper crafty you can have your kids draw a simple picture, print it on card stock and poke holes in it for them to follow along. In the pictures you will see how to use a back-stitch, this is my favorite stitch; I love that it gives a modern and clean aesthetic. It’s also really simple.
