This is more than a proud Mama post.
I thought others might get some creative activity ideas.
That's why I wrote this post.
Yes. That's why.
The works below are both fairly recently created by my youngest aged 4.
A needle felted 'HUG' gnome (with blanket).
A return gift for a friend who gave her own hug gnome to our boys, very nearly the same.
So, a copy, but Oh So Sweet!
'Pictures in their own frames', I was told when these were presented to me.
I'd wondered what he'd been up to downstairs.
The first is one of the Billy Goats Gruff.
The second is a portrait of me. I see the resemblance.
And this 'Dragon Lair' was built by Mr Turtle aged 6.
He made it secretly for his brother as a gift to house the the tiny dragon Little Pipkin had bought at a school market day.
My swollen heart fills with pride and love
at these giving, loving little boys,
who fill my life with light.
