We were about to leave the house and we saw this… 2 of them, lying on the floor.
What do you think we did? Of course we picked it up! Then LA got inspired. She knew where I kept my craft supplies and went to get a long strip of cardboard, scissors, glue, pen, ruler and colour pens.
Then she sat down, started to draw a long line with the ruler, cut it out and wanted to paint it. I stopped her there because it is not practical as paint colours will run when she sweats when wearing it. And I advised her to use coloured pens instead.
Halfway through, LL got interested in what his sister was doing. LA tried to explain to him but he did not understand until I explain it to him in very specific terms. I guess that’s because each child is different and thus thinks differently and have different perceptions about things. LL could not grasp the idea of how a feather can be attached to a hat and why would his sister want to do so. In his mind, a feather attached to a top hat makes no sense!
So both of them got down to work…. I did not interrupt besides trying to take pictures. In fact, I did not even ask them to do crafts today. They just got into it…. and helped each other to complete it.
And I am a proud crafty mama!
