Kids Sew on a Button

Here are some suggestions to make sewing buttons easy and fun for kids:
You will need a flat, big button with only two holes, a big needle (I use a plastic, darning one) that will fit through the button holes and thick thread (embroidery floss or thin yarn) that contrasts with the button color, and a small square of felt. For beginners, I fasten the button with thin thread that is the same color as the button. Thread a needle, make a knot and show your child how to go in and out of the button holes. Many children can thread needles better than adults, so let them do this too! For older children, make an “X” on the middle of the felt-your child will put the button on the “X.” Hold down button with your thumb and sew.
Kids love this activity!
