Gillispie’s Preschool Room 1 children explored the art of sewing by using small embroidery hoops and child-friendly needles threaded with yarn. With guidance from a teacher, the children experimented with how to push the needle through the burlap . . . and back again. As the children mastered this skill, they began creating their own designs. Opportunities like these develop children’s manual dexterity and fine motor skills while exposing them to new venues for creative expression.
