The garden is a great place to teach fine motor skills and concentration because it’s a relaxing setting that inspires creativity. I read more and more how young kids today are lacking in fine motor skills due to too much screen time and not enough handwork.
Enter Mati with these beautiful embroidery lessons!
Another day: hand-sewn sails for boats made out of bark.
And one more—students sewed together layers of felt to illustrate the parts of the apple. Again, a completely original lesson thought up by our garden teacher extraordinaire.
As always, thanks to Mati Moon for all photography. Stunning!
