Sewing, by hand or with a machine, is an important skill which is not my strong suit. Yes, I can sew on a button, hem up a skirt, mend a seam but it isn’t beautiful. September is National Sewing Month.
I’d rather sing about sewing than sew. However, finding a variety of sewing songs has proven to be a challenge. Here are some song suggestions with indicators for older adults (O), intergenerational (I) and preschool (P).
- Do, Re, Me (O,I)
- Quilting Party (O)
- Be My Life’s Companion – Mills Brothers (O)
- Family Hands – Mary Chapin Carpenter (O)
- Silver Threads and Golden Needles (O)
- O Can Ye Sew Cushions? (I)
- Scarborough Affair (I)
- Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush (C,I)
- There was a Taylor Had a Mouse (I)
For ideas to use with preschoolers, see this post on Teach Preschool.
