Crafting with a small person

Normally, for the Iron Craft Challenges, I am focused. I want to produce a lovely finished product.
This time I approached it a little differently.
I included my daughter. And we did crafts that were floral in nature.
Here I offer you “Flowers Three Ways”

We started with finger painting.
And she was very enthusiastic about that.
That was fun.
And ‘we’ made a flower

Then it was time to wipe hands.
colored hands
painty hands
We switched over to crayons.
Crayon assessment
And drew some flowers.
Crayon management

Then, the least “natural” craft of all, the ‘foamies’. Who knew how popular these things would become? They are like the cast offs from the flip flop factory! They are sticky foam. And easier to handle than paper stickers for her little fingers.

She loves to stick them everywhere. So we wore flowers.
Flowers in Pooh Bear’s hair.

And flowers in her hair.

A lovely crafting afternoon.
I was taking pictures of the whole affair. So she grabbed her camera too!
In years to come, we will focus on the end product. But for one afternoon, in her second year, it was just about the process. And we enjoyed every minute of the process.
