What do you do when no one wants to do the craft things you think they would like to do?
Get the experts in to help.
So of course I turned to Zoe.
And this is the tray of fun she put together:
Zoe didn’t have a specific idea in mind for her craft. She just knew what materials she felt like creating with. And here are the results… I know the craft object is a little blurry but I included this photo because of the look of pure enjoyment in Zoe’s eyes.
The shiny green pom pom creature on the left is a fish; the one with the orange pipe cleaner is a letter holder; the large one on the right is a nose phone and the small one Zoe is holding is a baby called “The Tot“. Yes I know what you’re thinking and you are right. There is no way I could have ever prepared a craft for Zoe that would turn out this varied. Or maybe you weren’t, maybe you were thinking “Thank God she told me what they were ‘cos I never would have worked that out in a million years”.
Anyone else a little wistful for their childhood imagination?
Hmm, me too
So, what’s up next? Well Mother’s Day is looming here in Australia so I will be featuring some crafts and cards for Mums over the next two weeks. Us Mums love kid-made craft and I am no exception. We also do crafts for the girl’s grandmothers so they will just have to refrain from opening my Mother’s Day posts. I’d hate to spoil the surprise!
Thanks for dropping by!
