I had a lovely day on Wednesday, spending time with my niece, The Tot.
She already loves crafts and creating, so we spent a little time making puppets from a couple of kits I'd bought cheaply at Wilkinson's and then putting on a puppet show. I know I'm probably biased, but Tot has a fabulous imagination, and needs very little encouragement to tell stories!
Despite her short fingernails, Tot was ace at peeling off the backing on the sticky felt...
Tot called the bodkin a "magic pen" - I thought that was very apt!
I did have to guide the needle through the holes, but Tot pulled the yarn through - she liked that bit!
The finished tiger!
(for some reason, despite being rotated in photobucket, these pictures have come out sideways...)
