This is a pretty low cost activity that our eldest child enjoys a lot. It is quite inexpensive and can fill hours.

There are patterns available on the internet, but I find that using MS Word, I can just print letters and numbers which work well. All I do is change the font outline to be dots with a weight of 2 pts.

To do the needle pushing, we just use a pin and some cardboard under the pattern.

So fun for kids, and great for their dexterity. Wish I still had a little one :)
