I am not a crafty mom. I’m just not. Drawing and coloring of any kind is on the top of my least favorite things to do list, right up there with sewing. But my kids love all things crafty, and I think that’s great. As a non crafty mom I do facilitate their craftiness. See that big blue box in the back? That is our craft box. While I rarely sit down and do an organized crafts with the kids, I do keep this box full of all kinds of items that allow them to create to their hearts’ content.
Even my five year old came up with his own ornaments. For his, he made a circle of glue, sprinkled glitter on it, and then cut it out! My home isn’t always this harmonious, but it was so fun to watch and listen to them work together and help each other to make their Christmas tree.
Now, I need to figure out how to encourage the girls to sew even though I won’t touch a needle…hmm. Sewing and I just don’t get along, but that’s a story for another day.
