When a child exercises muscles in the hand, she/he is actually forming the brain. Let's take a look at Hand "work" - Fairy Dust Teaching

Hand 'work'

When a child exercises muscles in the hand, she/he is actually forming the brain. Handwork, in the traditional sense, are activities such as sewing, darning, mending, embroidery, weaving and knitting. One of my Waldorf mentors told me that handwork is deeply related to the development of morality. Just watch a five year old sew! It is magical! But I also think that all acts of creation by the use of the hands is handwork! Joseph Chilton Pearce said that the fingers were the eyes of the…

The best way I have found to teach hand sewing in a 'running stitch' is to explain that it is an AB pattern in which you go…

Finger Knitting and Sewing Like Elves!

One of the components of my 'Elves and the Shoemaker' unit is teaching the children to finger knit and sew. Finger knitting is always a favorite. The boys love it as much as the girls. Click here for a video on how to finger knit. Because a long piece of yarn will end up so short - making bracelets is the best first step! This student wanted to try it on different kinds of yarn and string. Here he is finger knitting twine. Clearly, he couldn't stop knitting! He was draped in his good work…

Hand Sewing for Literacy

When I decided to attend a NAEYC session on sewing with young children - I had no idea I would walk into a session with an author I love! In her book 'Sewing School: 21 Sewing Projects Kids Will Love to Make' I had adored the simple but highly engaging projects like the Superhero Cuff and the Wonder Wallet for my kindergartners. It was an inspiration to my commitment to providing the powerhouse of hand work. Here is the thing. In early childhood, children are building their capacity to use…
