I saw an info-graphic on Adweek that said that 41% ‘tweens would rather make something themselves rather than buy it. Gracie is apart of that 41%.
Gracie’s hands are busy all the time. She may have the TV on, but it is only for the noise. She makes her own flip flops, she makes her own rings and she decorates her clothing. She’s a very talented girl. I’m bragging, I’m a Mom, I can do that!
She can draw things that I am in awe of. They look wonderful. Her colors look so wonderful together. She has a way of putting colors together that I never would have imagined. They always look great.
I have no idea where she gets this talent. Martha, my Mother-in-law, says that Don drew very well as a child but didn’t do much with it after that. No one in our family is crafty. She has just taken everything up herself. I’m just amazed at her abilities.
How about your child, are they crafty? Would they rather make something than buy it?
