Build Fine Motor Skills with a Toddler Friendly Sewing Basket

Tomorrow is the day I finally share my Celebrate the Boy post and I’m bouncy off the walls here!  To celebrate I give you this Toddler Friendly Sewing Basket from Childhood 101.  This is hands down one of the coolest kid activities I’ve spotted in a while and it’s even sewing related (almost like I was saving it for some sewing-inclined readers who might be stopping by tomorrow).

I’ve been on the lookout for creative lacing activities to build C’s fine motor skills ever since he took so well to the Melissa and Doug lacing beads he got for Christmas.  This project is just what I’ve been searching for and then some.  Click through for the details.

This Toddler Friendly Sewing Basket includes a plethora of stimulating lacing and sewing activities.  My favorite part has to be the ingenious kid-friendly embroidery hoop, great for a number of progressive sewing activities.  Can you guess what they used as “fabric”?  Head over to Childhood 101 for help creating your own basket and don’t forget to check back tomorrow for my very own sewing project for Celebrate the Boy!
