It’s Christmas time!…

For Christmas we decided to make our loved ones some useful gifts…

For Daddy we made a shopping bag out of one of one of his old pair of jeans. and we added a note:”Please keep me in your car at all times! no more plastic bags!”

For Grandpop we used the same jeans but we used the top to make a tool/garden belt. He can use it with a belt if it is a bit too tight! (-;.

For Mummy we made fingerless gloves with a jumper…(we used the rest of the jumper to make ourselves a pair too after Christmas!)

For Granny, we made some lavender bags with lavender from France that I picked on my last Summer holidays and dried at home.

The children learned how to think about the process of the making of before diving into it. Their “engineer” brain gets activated before their fingers handle the scissors! (-;. The idea is to make them as independent as possible with these projects and their own to come…
