Don't just live in the world

All the pretty things

February 15th, 2014 | Posted by Amy Boughner in #ToddlerLife | Parenting

My daughter is showing signs of becoming something I was totally unprepared for.

I think she’s going to be a crafter.

She looks at scraps and sees things she can make.

Exhibit A:



That came out of a baseball cap. It was keeping the shape. She picked it up and told me she sees a piano.

Every paper, every box, every toilet paper tube she wants to make a craft. The best I can do is go to Pinterest and look up something someone else has made. My kid? She’ll just get out her glue and scissors, tape, markers, maybe some stickers and just make something, anything.

She’s made racetracks and cars. She’s made dresses for some dolls out of play dough.

She drew a thunderstorm.


She asked to make a stop motion movie because she saw one once. I watch her with fascination. I can’t remember if I was like that when I was her age, I was more about taking things apart than putting them together.

I write, I draw, but I don’t put pieces together. I tried scrapbooking once and hated it.

I hope she keeps seeing things with this creativity as she grows.
