Sew ‘N’ Sew at Timberdoodle

Sew ‘N’ Sew
From the Timberdoodle website:

Sew ‘n’ Sew
This frustration-free lacing tool has been used for two decades to teach very young children basic lacing skills. Sew ‘n’ Sew’s smooth-to-the-touch wooden block with slanted holes and its oversized wooden needle make it super-easy for tiny ones to develop the hand-eye coordination and fine-motor skills needed not only for lacing but also as a pre-writing skill. Compact in size, the Sew ‘n’ Sew makes an ideal traveling companion and inspires discovery while fostering valuable developmental skills your child will use for a lifetime.

Our experience:
Sew ‘N’ Sew is an intriguing toy that holds up even under the most rigorous chewing and dropping.  I love that there’s no painted surfaces that can chip or “needle” to get lost.  My 20 month old needed some help getting started.  But after watching his siblings “sew”, he had it down in no time.  This is one very durable learning toy that will be used for many hours!!!

Sew ‘N’ Sew is one of the learning toys available in Baby Timberdoodle Core Curriculum.


From Timberdoodle:

Why We Do Curriculum Kits
As you know, Timberdoodle has been meeting the needs of home educators since 1985. However, it is only in the past few years that we started offering complete curriculum kits, finally realizing that new homeschoolers often like to start with a curriculum package the first year. It lets them relax knowing that everything is covered, and get their feet wet with a complete plan in place. Since our goal is to help parents teach their children at home, offering curriculum packages was a natural outflow of this. (You can read more or watch our video here)

Babies and Toddlers
Since helping parents teach their kids is our goal, it also makes sense to start with the little ones. We aren’t ever going to be advocating for forced baby geniuses and hours spent at a desk from the time your child can sit. Instead, we want parents and their little ones to get a taste for the joy of learning early, in the natural environment of daily life. In that attempt, we have assembled the best tools we can find into kits for your wee one. In our opinion the best toys are not just toys, but are the safest, sturdiest, most educational tools, you can find, with the final test being whether they are still actually fun for you and your little one. One of the most little known facts on these kits though is that every item is completely reusable (with the obvious exception of the toddler workbooks!) so a parent can use it with all of their children, and then pass it on for the grandchildren or to the church nursery!

The Planning Folders
These serve a few different purposes. First, they give mom something to show dad so that he can get a quick overview of what he bought and why. J Second, they give you some of the reasons we’ve included each item, and an assortment of ideas for using them. Third, the checklist gives you an easy way to keep track of what you and Junior have done this week, without juggling a formal schedule or having to remember what you did Monday and what was last week. Fourth, we’ve included some of the articles our customers have found most helpful through the years, for those new parents or new homeschoolers who may not have seen the articles on our blog.

A word about the Planning Folder:
Included in the Core Curriculum is a wonderful Planning Folder packed with information on how to use each item in the kit.  It also includes useful information such as:  “What You Need to Know Before You Get Started.”  “Learning Styles”, “Ideal Environment”, “How to Do It All:  Housework, Homeschool and Home Business.” and my favorite “Toddler Tornadoes”.

Other Core Curriculum packages can be viewed here.
