Sewing a Fly Maze

Now that the weather is warming up, we have been noticing more flies.  I saw this fun sewing activity at Sewing School and asked my son if he wanted to make a "Fly Maze" with me.  Since he loves any type of puzzle or maze and is fascinated with the flies he was up for it.  We cut out the center of a paper plate.  We used a hole punch to make holes around the circle.  Then we tied yarn onto a piece of pipe cleaner to create a "needle".  After he put the yarn through one hole, I tied it on so it wouldn't slip out.  He simply went back and forth through the holes to create a maze looking design.  He kept at it until he was happy with his creation.  They are now hanging in the window waiting for a fly to give it a go.

Of course, they found some other uses for yarn, like wrapping himself up,
or, just cutting the yarn into little, bitty pieces.
