The public schools in our area closed for summer vacation this week. As I saw the kids swarming the streets, I remembered that it was in the summer that I learned to knit. (Alright, I really never knit well but it was a summer learned skill. I also took basketweaving.)
We have some great kids kits that come with the canvas, threads and directions. Sometimes, it's great to have a surprise activity for kids to do. The kids have many different themes including a seahorse, crab, mermaid, football, lion and lots of animals.
