This "winter" we tried out sewing for the first time in our pre-K art studio. I based this project on one of Friedrich Froebel's occupations from the 1830's (with a slightly more contemporary palette).
Tons of new skills with this project!
Read all about it, and see more pictures of the abstract constellation-like stitchings the kids made over at Pacon's website. Mini lesson on Froebel, the inventor of Kindergarten too.
Like it/need to make it? I've got the lesson plan with pre-K standards available to download here.
