Gardening ~ Memories and Creativity...


No sewing in today's post. Anyone who has been reading Threading My Way for any length of time, will know that I love to garden. It's a passion I've had for my whole adult life. Other hobbies have come and gone, but gardening has always been something I love to do.

Tips for Mess Free Painting with Kids ~ Threading My Way


Young children love painting. I have yet to meet a child who doesn't. It's a great way for them to explore their creativity, but most importantly, a fabulous way for them to have fun. 

Unlike many other kids' activities, however, it's not just a matter of getting out a toy, playing and packing it away. Painting with kids does require a little planning if you want it to be mess and hassle free.
