My only daughter is now 6 and holidays with her seem to bring out something in me that lay dormant with the three other boys. Although I attempted to introduce crafts and decorating edible items to the boys, these events mostly left me abandon in the kitchen completing the task. My confidence in mothering shattered, I would pick up the pieces of my wounded heart and clean up the remnants of the project. Why did these three creatures not want to spend time creating something yummy and fun?
Along came the girl to teach me that most BOYS DON'T DO CRAFTS! (especially teens) My daughter's enthusiasm, commitment, and creativity restored my ambition to participate in holiday craft-making and we have experienced a lot of fun! These photos reflect some of our past projects for Halloween!
Come back soon to see what we produced this Halloween!
