When my grand-daughter (almost age 3) comes to visit, we like to have something new and interesting for her. She has "her things" and "her space" at Grannie and Grandpa's house. My sweet daughter is a proud aunt and often is key in these preparations.
We cut up cereal boxes, into shapes, and a carrier case, as well as extra pieces were used to wrap extra yarn around, with their own craft stick "needles."
This is a crafty to make that cost literally pennies, and great fun for a child can be had. Little brains are stimulated, and fine motor skills are practiced and strengthened as little fingers manipulate the craft stick "needle" to lead thread through the desired hole in the cardboard design.
Crafties are therapeutic and offer the opportunity to feel accomplishment, in addition to the warm cuddles that can be had while taking the time to teach, listen, show, praise. It can add up for a child......ready to receive the Sonshine.
** I will load more pictures, later, of little hands at work♡
God bless you and yours,
Grandma Mary Martha
