I looked after my sisters two youngest boys this morning (Sam 4 1/2 and Alex 2 1/2) and as Lucy and Alex are at the same age (that biting age!!) it is always best to keep them thoroughly entertained!
I have been meaning to make up some sewing cards for some time, but as I was unprepared this morning I just printed these ones off the internet onto some red card. Sam (who's a rather crafty wee 4 year old) helped me cut around the shapes and punch the holes. We then made some sewing laces out of this gorgeous bakers twine I had in my stash by wrapping sellotape around one end and tying a large button to the other to act as an anchor.
All three kids had fun with it, the little ones lost interest a lot faster, but Sam finished off a couple of animals and was excited to show his Mum when she collected him (always a good sign)!
