Floss usage tip to avoid tangling: Have child measure a length of floss equal to the distance from the inside of their elbow to fingertips. This will give a manageable amount of thread for sewing. In most cases, it will be best to sew with a length comprised of 3 strands, not 6. After cutting the correct length the strand will need to be split. To do so, have child hold one end in front of them and separate the 6 strands in half (two threads each comprised of 3 strands), making a point to avoid having threads that cross, gently and slowly pull apart causing the 6-strands to spin as it is divided in half. Tangling will result if the floss is pulled apart too quickly so remind the child to go slow.
