My kids are all pretty crafty. (I think they come by it naturally.) My 14-year-old, Samantha, is particularly talented at both knitting and drawing, and it’s really exciting for me to see that she’s learned the value in creating one-of-a-kind handmade gifts for her family and her friends. This year, she is knitting quite a few of her gifts, but she also used her drawing skills to create this trio of sketches for her niece, Katie.
Katie’s a little too young to really appreciate these now, but someday, she’ll love them both for their beauty and for the love that went in to them! Are your children giving any handmade gifts this year? How do you encourage them to develop their creative talents and share them with others? I’d be thrilled to hear your suggestions!
