For Christmas we purchased ALOT of art supplies for my 6 yr. old granddaughter and my 3 yr. old grandson. They've always had a box on a shelf in my sewing room with their supplies, they know just where to go for them and so enjoy using them.
Sophie wants to sew like Grandma. So I bought her a little kid sewing machine and she's delighted but she wants to go right to the "big" machine!
As she familiarizes herself with the machine, her 3 yr old brother Holden asks, "Grandma, is this art supplies?"....hoping for a turn himself! To which Sophie replies, "NO, this is girl supplies"!!!
Right away, she wants to make a dress for her sister, Lola, who is due to be born anyday.
Oh, if it were only that simple!
