Busy Little Hands
On Tuesday morning Reece and I sat on the couch with some sticks and yarn. Curiosity got the best of him, and he was just a tad bit excited about what we were going to do with sticks and yarn...according to him the two together was just "weird". I set up the first God's Eye, showed him what to do and off he went. Never has he taken to a craft the way he took to this one. He absolutely loved it. He was singing away as he wrapped the yarn, and then he started listing off the people he wanted to make one for. I just sat there, smiling at the great pleasure he was receiving from this simple craft.
He has quite the collection now, adding a few more yesterday. Some of them have been set aside for gift giving and others have been placed around our home. Last night he asked to have a stash of sticks and yarn in the car for our drive south in the next few weeks....can I say how happy I will be to have this lovely activity keeping him busy as I drive.
The simplicity of this craft, the pure joy he received from creating, and the time we got to spend side by side making them filled me with such warmth and made me so very happy.
