Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort.

Add some STEAM to your child's activities!
It’s back to school time! It is also an ideal time to add some learning opportunities to enhance your child’s development. STEAM, (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) covers the full spectrum of development that will help your child attain success.
STEAM learning with Sewing is lots of FUN! By exploring and learning a new skill your child will add valuable confidence and knowledge that complements classroom time.
Sewing is an ideal STEAM activity.
While creating a sewing project your child will visualize a finished product, plan ahead, and see how the individual steps of the process build to the completed work. These skills are applicable to many things like project management and engineering.
In sewing your child will measure, cut, and use shapes. These are measurement and geometry skills. These skills also improve spatial awareness and develop eye-hand coordination and fine-motor skills.
There is so much more, but the most important thing is that your child will start with a few separate pieces and will create something tangible from the work of their hands. Children need to try something that is a skill stretch. They need to try new things. And, they need to see that their work has value. Sewing a project and making something they can use will bring a sense of accomplishment that is the most valuable benefit of all!
