Since the crochet has been ramping up in preparation for Christmas, my 6 year old son wanted to get on board and use his hands to create some presents as well. He loves hand sewing and for the first time has added faces to his creations. He cuts his own fabric, makes his own designs, and does all the sewing himself. He only needs me around to tie his knots. I think we will put hooks in them and call them Christmas tree ornaments.
I want to teach him to be excited about gift giving and about making things with his own hands. My hope is that he grows up to know that Christmas is about remembering the Greatest Gift to Mankind, a Savior named Jesus.
