I've been working a lot on Christmas gifts around here and some of them involve hand sewing.  My 3 year old daughter, Ariel, has been watching with interest.  Yesterday she found my secret stash of buttons and claimed a handful for herself.  I think she was wondering if she could get away with it when I asked her if she wanted to sew those buttons onto something.  She was really excited and sat with the project until we discussed that some of those buttons would make excellent plates for her dollhouse!

I didn't take any in process photos because I didn't want to spoil the moment, and by the time she was done she was way too involved in the doll house to look proud and kept giving me "cheesy grins."  Anyways I wanted to share it with my crafty's! Smiley

And they made pretty good plates but they fell off the table so easily that she became frustrated quickly. 

It was a lot of fun!  I look forward to years of sharing craftiness together!!!

Progress not perfection.

Aw, yea, how cute! I look forward to when mine (just turned 2) is old enough to join in, instead of having to constantly be shooed away. Smiley

Aaaw! What a cutie!

Maybe use the fabric with the buttons as a tablecloth, and then the "plates" can't fall off? But they can't be moved around either. Hmm.

See!  That's what I thought!  Use the fabric as a tablecloth!  I think at the point I suggested it it might have been too late.  Smiley

This is very cute! I don't have kids my self, but what a great feat to have them sit long enough to focus on doing a craft project. My sisters little girl (4) likes crafts but asked DH and I for her own computer with World of Warcraft on it. I think I need to bump up the crafts.  Undecided
