Have you taught a child how to knit? Maybe you taught your own children/nieces/nephews, your friends’ children, at a school, a daycare, or maybe you volunteered at an after-school program. If you’ve had this experience, then I’m sure you’ve seen just how beneficial it can be to get yarn and knitting needles into those little hands. Montessori schools teach children how to knit from a young age, so they learn how to focus better; they learn patience and self-soothing techniques. It would be amazing if more schools could integrate this valuable skill to children.
