Christmas Tree Sewing

This activity involved lacing a pipe cleaner through a paper Christmas tree. Lacing (or sewing) activities are a great educational and developmental tool for preschoolers.

As children grasp the tip of the the pipe cleaner, they are building their pincer grip which is crucial for writing skills.  They also learn patterns and develop hand-eye coordination through the act of weaving the string through the holes.  Finally, it is also a lesson in patience as they ever so slowly work their way across the Christmas tree with their string.
