A fun set of three little sewing cards for kids. Sewing cards are an excellent activity for developing fine motor skills and improving hand-eye coordination and concentration.
A quick download, paper punch, thread and a kid-safe needle is all it takes for elemental age children to enjoy this fun activity. They make for a great ‘take-along’ activity for family holidays and road trips too.
Sewing Cards for Kids – Just Print & Play
Try cross hatching, running stitch and edging – it’s up to the kids how they want to follow the punched holes.
To make kids sewing cards you will need
- printer and some 200/220gm white card stock
- hole punch (or just push an empty pen or sharp object through the holes if you don’t have a punch)
- blunt needle
Sewing Cards for Toddlers
For younger kids make the holes a little bigger and you can capture some wool inside a small piece of pipe cleaner and bend it to form a needle.
Or if you don’t have either then just wrap the threading end of the wool with a little sellotable (clear adhesive tape).
Tie a big knot at one end of the wool or use a button as a stopper.
Because there are no needles involved, these turn out to be more of a threading card for toddlers which works really well.
Please always keep an eye on your little ones as they sew, even with a blunt needle.
Sewing Cards for Preschoolers
For preschoolers, you could use a blunt needle or one of the tips from the toddler sewing card ideas above.
Again, tie a knot at one end of the wool or use a button as a stopper.

Summer Cards for Kids
I love these summer cards! The popsicle is colorful and looks tasty enough to eat. Yarn colors that work well for this sewing card is white and red. Or get creative with different colors to enhance the sewing pattern.
The friendly blue whale is the next sewing card in the summer card series. Using various colors of blue yarn with white trim will complete the free stitching card template as above.
The third summer card for kids is probably my favorite! Watermelon! Add some black criss-cross stitching for the watermelon seeds. The finished threading card is shown with white trim, but I want to try green like the watermelon rind next time.
