It's Catching!!

The littlest crafted ALL on her own. I brought home a craft book from work about a week ago, and I just left it on the hutch and promptly forgot all about it. The kid picked it up, asked for a paper bag (we only had lunch-sized), and she found the oil pastels and her little scissors. Following the pictures in the book, she made a ladybug costume for Flower (that's her bear's name). I feel a little 'not needed', but at the same time, absolutely thrilled. She got that 'craftiness' from ME!!! Woo-hoo!

Oh, and after several struggles about playing with water on the dining room table, she coloured a paper plate blue and drew in a fish, and now the Polly Pockets and all the Littlest Pets can go swimming without getting wet. Ingenius!!
She may not be a smartie-pants at school, but in creativity, she's all A's.

She's so talented! (There must be a gene or something). Flower looks great. And I love the little goldfish.

That is so sweet. My daughter too isn't the quickest to learn in school but she is so creative and imaginative. She's older but started making a doll all on her own and I must admit, it is really cute. And she's begging me to post about it.

it's not that she's not bright. . she just thinks in a different way. She's very creative and really that's far more important than anything else.

Clearly she can follow direction just fine ;)
