    I've done binca squares with mine and they loved it once they got the hang of it. The simple running stitch was obviously easiest but some more advanced children enjoyed the challenge of cross stitch

    We've done it in the nursery AND they managed to make lavender bags stuffed with lavender we had grown in the garden.
     
  6. My foundation class made some lovely vine patterns using running stitches on felt leaves for our calendars last year.
     
  7. I teach Reception and we make simple stockings using running stitch at Christmas and now we are attempting to draw a picture onto a grid and then sew it onto a card using running stitch, not sure how it will work but going to give it a go. Before starting sewing I would suggest a lot of beading and threading cards and possibly weaving frames. BTW I could knit competently at 5 as could a lot of my peers, lets not underestimate little ones!
