We absolutely LOVED this Fine Motor Christmas Tree Button Sewing project!  My girls saw the materials gathered a few days before we did it, and they were very anxious to be able to get started.  My youngest daughter, Maggie, had never done any sewing before.  She was so pleased with herself and how her tree turned out!  She's even made a few more on her own since we did this the first time.  I'll show you how to set up your own Christmas tree sewing activity.

Get Ready!


Cut the green plastic canvas into a triangular Christmas tree shape.  The trees I cut for the girls were fairly large.  I'd make them smaller next time.

Thread a yarn needle with some yarn.  Double the thread over and tie several knots at the end so that it won't slide through the holes in the canvas.  Make sure that your needle will fit through both the plastic canvas and the buttons.  We had several yarn needles, and some of them were definitely TOO big!

Start Sewing

Show your child how to attach a button to the tree.  They'll push the needle up from the underside of the canvas, thread through a button hole, and then push the needle back down through another button hole and through the canvas.

Maggie needed some help remembering the sequence of the steps at first, but eventually she got it!  Some times I let her "mess up" on purpose so that she could problem solve on her own.

She was especally proud of herself that she figured out how to attach buttons that had a loop on the back instead of holes, like this snowflake.

This button sewing was such great fine motor practice!  There are so many great steps involved in holding and manipulating the needle, threading through small holes, and positioning the buttons just right.

Make sure to add a pretty yellow star at the top!  Maggie actually chose a yellow flower, instead.  You may need to add additional lengths of yarn if your child attaches lots of buttons.  Just tie one off and start over!
