"Mom, I wanna make something."
This is the time when you realize that your passions have made an impression on your little ones.
He is actually interested in the things that interest you.
He wants to be part of that part of your life.
He has the urge to create! What a wonderful thing to pass along to a child.
Anyway, when I questioned what he wanted to make, he replied that he didn't know but that he wanted to make it with fabric (to be specific, he said he wanted to make something with "fagric" but I got the point). So the wheels started turning and we came up with a crayon and paper pad folder.
