Why should you put your kids to work? Because they’ll love it!
Not to mention they’ll learn a life skill in the process.
But I think the biggest take away here is that Cupcake walked away with confidence, knowing she can do something new. And she was so proud when Daddy got home and she got to show him that SHE sewed his button on all by herself.
She’s four years old. She was thrilled to help repair books for an hour, and then she needed something different, something new. So while I continued my book repair workshop she sat beside me and learned to sew a button.
This beats busy bags by a million! We’re actually accomplishing something useful and making memories together.
