Threading is a basic early childhood learning experience that develops eye-hand coordination, fine motor skills, and spatial awareness. Sew ‘N’ Sew adds another dimension-unthreading. Children thread the lace through openings in the wooden spool anyway they like, then reverse course and retrace their route. This requires concentration and problem-solving. Stitching is always easier than removing stitches. Ask anyone who sews. Easy to take along, Sew ‘N’ Sew provides a quiet, relaxing distraction.
