Crafting with Kids

Gregory is a rough and tough four year old, but he has a soft side that loves to cuddle so I thought making a stuffed animal together would be the perfect craft. We decided on a kitten and cut out a rectangle of felted wool. Instead of stitching, I put hot glue along the edges and had Gregory carefully press the sides together. He picked out some buttons to glue on as eyes, then decided to cut a mouth and fangs out of some spare wool. I did show and help him stitch on some whiskers, but the rest of the kitty was all his doing.
