It’s always interesting to see where children’s imagination will take them when given a few craft supplies! We love to make things; I’d like to think we make something every day, whether it be a disastrous pot holder, tasty muffins, a knitted beanie or a pair of binoculars…

The greatest thing about this moment was that Georgia and Matthew planned the activity themselves, and gathered the equipment themselves. I love it that they helped eachother out and came to some rather interesting methods of construction. Both these children are uber creative. I step cautiously to think we are a fairly creative family, actually, coming from generations of performers, builders and crafters.
