I have been making gifts for years. With the arrival of the grand children I made each crocheted blankets, and pillows to curl up with. Each child has one cross stitch picture on their walls and recently I have begun to craft with the children.
Children enjoy being creative, it can be simply using a piece of paper.
Or learning to work with plastic canvas I saved from the trash
With the children enjoying expressing themselves creatively, mom wanted in on the fun. She asked her grand mother to show her how to crochet. What started out as a blanket for dolls became a hat. I’ve yet to figure out how she did that, but her daughter is thrilled with the outcome.
Timing was perfect as we are getting our first snow fall today, it’s not sticking….yet. I was thrilled to see the joy my daughter-in-law felt when her little one gushed with appreciation for the handmade gift. Her second try at creating a hat failed for her son, but she’s not giving up.
