A lot of our projects and crafts we do around the house start out with a request or idea from my daughters. When Joci asks me to make a cape for her cat, I go to my fabric and ribbon scraps excited to see what will emerge. Apparently Joci has caught on and last night after we brushed her teeth she requested a toothbrush for her bunny. We were getting ready for bed so I declined, telling her I'd do it tomorrow. She then asked if she could make a toothbrush out of her toys. I wanted to see what she came up with so I let her run into her play room. She came out with a popsicle stick and requested a cotton ball and a piece of tape. I was impressed.
She then decided she needed a flosser for her bunny, and this time excitedly informed me she was going to find something from her toys to make a flosser. She ran into the other room and a few minutes later came back with a chenille stem requesting a little help shaping it into a flosser. I'm definitely going to include her in my brainstorming next time she asks for a little project!
What little projects do your little ones do?
That is super cute! My daughter (6) is similar. She recently made her own paper doll cat and made pjs and a bed for it as well. I love seeing what my kids come up with...
