Firstly, please excuse the quality of these photos. I took them with my tablet and it was horribly awkward (the camera is on the front, and it's just...very awkward).
Anyway, recently my daughter has taken a serious liking to all things crafty. She's three, and fairly dexterous, so I set her up with some felt cut outs and an needle (that I dulled a bit for safety purposes) and let her be.
Keeping the shapes simple, I marked around the edges with dots, and did about three stitches myself to get her started. After that, she was off. I had to keep the thread fairly short because her arms are short, and it just resulted in a tangle.
We made a mickey, and a hello kitty (her favorite), along with a dog, a shark, and another cat, but she gave those to her cousins for Christmas.
It keeps her occupied for a good hour when I need it, and has helped her in leaps and bounds when it's come to patience. Which is serious business when you're three! Anyway, I am super proud of her, and kind of just wanted to brag.
Maybe eventually (when I have a proper camera) I'll post my own crafts!
