I ventured into Hobbycraft today to grab some bits to start off the girls Arts & Crafts box. What an expensive shop!
P1 walked in and the first thing she said was “Wow this is amazing!” And that’s the exact same reaction that I had when I used to go with my Mum and spend many hours going down every aisle. I’ve always been a lover of everything arty – probably why I gained an A in my GCSEs.
I’ve always wanted to create an art box for P1. Full of everything she’d need for a day at home. For her to be able to make anything, draw anything, create anything that her little imagination shows her.
Today I made that dream come true. I’ve got the foundations to let P1 explore her own creative side – and she is a very creative and imaginative child.
We still have a few bits to arrive from eBay to complete the start up of my box. I’m so excited to get messy with P1 and obviously P2 when she’s old enough to join in – for now we have to hope she’ll give us an hour to have girly Mum and P1 time.
