The ALEX Toys Little Hands Ready Set Sew set focuses on sewing skills, which relies on fine motor skills. We have always loved making fun activities that focus on fine motor skills, since they are so important for young children to learn. In this box of fun activities are stickers, lacing cards, and sewing projects. Children can also learn about colors and shapes.
The ALEX Toys Little Hands Ready Set Sew set was perfect for my 5 and 6 year olds. They have some beginner experience sewing on plastic canvas and on fabric in an embroidery hoop, but I felt like this set was perfect for children around their age because it teaches the basics of sewing, but on cardboard. Cardboard is stiff and won't slip out of your hand like fabric can. It helps little children learn how to lace with ease, which leads to being able to sew more easily. This set had lots of different activities in it, from decorating a triangle flag banner to decorating a lady bug with sew on buttons. The set came with enough materials for a handful of different activities and each activity was individually bagged, which keeps it more organized and makes it easier to find what you need. Both of my kids gave this set a thumbs up.
My children loved creating the crafts.
