Recycled Can Craft

Here is a simple craft to do on a rainy afternoon. After eating some spaghetti o's for lunch, we washed out the cans and broke out the construction paper and this is what the kids came up with.

Sewing Memories

When I was 8 or 9 I remember my mom was sewing a pair of pants for my dad. And I wanted to learn to see too. As practice she would draw a maze on a piece of paper and let me "sew" through it without thread. With it only poking holes, I had lots of practice making the needle go where I wanted. Here is my first sewing project I was able to do myself. (With help sewing the final edge) A simple pillow that I still have on my bed today. I was so proud when I made it and it reminds me how awesome it really is to create something from nothing.
