Some days I think that with all our modern technology
and advancements that we are forcing kids to grow up too fast!And consequently keeping ourselves WAY too busy.
My daughter, now 9, is a crafter.
She loves to do projects...she got that from me...well, and her dad.
See, perfect family combination!
She'd rather do a craft than watch a show...and I am glad.
One time, when I might have been watching Downton Abbey...
she asked if she could paint her wooden Art mannequin we got at Ikea.
I said "sure, if you can do it all yourself"...great parenting!
(Side note: did you know I googled images because I didn't take a before picture...
and more commonly people spell it 'manikin'? Clearly we aren't teaching people how to spell.)
Notice the paper crown, halo, bracelet, diamond and skirt?
She also brought me a refreshing drink...
And decorated it with Washi tape too!
She is so fun,
she always finds the smiles on the cupcakes!
Linking up to THESE parties this week!
