Sew Easy


Is sewing a favorite pastime of yours that you would like to pass on to your child? The dog days of summer are a great time to teach your child this hobby, and math plays a big part in it!

Sewing, knitting, and crocheting all use many kinds of math to create pieces of clothing, quilts, or wall hangings: counting rows on a sock, adding yarn to make a piece bigger, multiplying to figure out how many times a certain color will fit across a motif. The possibilities are endless!

Not only does sewing make a great math lesson, you'll also be teaching your child a life-long skill that she will be able use for years to come.
