My 6 year old loves to sew. I do not think that this is normal, but I guess it might be if little girls were allowed near the sewing stuff. What's not to like, besides the sharp needle, but everything else is right up those creative munchkin's alley. Lou-Lou decided to sew her valentines this year, so we picked something super simple. She sewed 21 bags and then just cut out a simple heart and typed up the tags. She decided that typing would be easier---ha! An hour and 1/2 later she was done typing all the names that probably would have taken her 10 minutes to write. Oh well, she got the experience down and she had fun.
