Truth be told I am a sucker when it comes to crafty things and kids. I love being crafty with my daughter and we have an entire craft box full of fun things to keep little fingers busy during the day or even if only for just a few hours.
She loves it. I love it. Perfect match.
This week I found the ultimate Mummy & Daughter crafty thing. Fancy being able to buy a best friend in a box, I would have LOVED this when I was a kid. I was excited, Isabelle was thrilled & so this morning the two of us sat down for our first stitching craft time.
There were loads of sweet colors inside the box & Isabelle sorted out and matched the legs, arms, dress parts and chose her favorite hair color - bright red of course.
Yep - she was excited.
I loved the pink plastic saftey needles and the pre punched holes in the felt pieces - perfect for little fingers. I will be honest, at 3 1/2yrs Isabelle managed a few stitches on the arm but found it much more fun to sit and watch Mummy while her new best friend was stitched together....you know I didn't mind one bit.
Less than 2 hours later....
'Pink' was complete and there was one very happy girl in the house.
I think Izzy & Pink will have fun together for at least the next few days - maybe weeks, and I might have to go and find a few more to store away in the craft box - she was loads of fun to make and less than $7 (from Aldi)....... a crafty bargain makes that makes me beyond happy.
