Sewing with Kids ~ Using a Sewing Machine

What's the best age to teach kids to sew? What age can you start to let your little one use a sewing machine? I'm not sure that there's any hard and fast rules, but Little Miss used my sewing machine the other day, so I thought I'd show you how we went about it.

Thumb Printing and Mixing Colours ~ Painted Flowers

The kids had so much fun the first time they experimented with Thumb Print Art, I thought we'd have another go. Not only is thumb printing fun, it's an easy way to produce a piece of artwork that you will be happy to have hanging on the wall.
