What You'll Need

How We Did It

Easy Stitch Cards

Cut your empty cereal box to size. (I cut out a 5" x 7" rectangle so that the final masterpiece could be framed.)

Easy Stitch Cards

Draw your design. Or better yet, have your kids draw a fun design.

Easy Stitch Cards

With a hammer and nail, poke holes all along the drawing. I suggest spacing out the holes about 1/4" to 3/8" apart.

Easy Stitch Cards

Tip: Make sure to have some padding underneath the cardboard to protect your work surface. I just padded the 5"x7" cardboard with another piece of cardboard.

Easy Stitch Cards

Pull out your colored yarn and thread up your needle. (My girls used a plastic needle, which had a large eye for them to thread.)

Easy Stitch Cards

Tie a knot at the end and start stitching from the back of the card. Pull the needle up and down to connect the dots.

Easy Stitch Cards

These stitch cards are perfect to keep tucked in the car for long trips or even in your on-the-go bag as a quick and quiet activity.

I am doing this project with my four year old. I made a card with his name. We are doing the sewing together, and as we do each letter we talk about the letter name and it's sound. When we are done, he will have a tactile version of this name that he can practice tracing with his finger.
