Henry lost his second tooth the other day. He was bummed that we had not made his tooth pillow, with a pocket, like Paul, for that first tooth.
This time I was prepared because his tooth has been loose for weeks. So I had felt out and already cut the shape. He just needed to join me, by making the face and starting to sew.
He broke the project up all day, taking breaks, but was determined to finish before bed.
What I am learning about Henry is he is a hard worker who is stronger in gross motor skills (running up and down a soccer field while kicking a ball) and he gets easily frustrated by fine motor skills (sewing with a needle and thread). But he does have perserverance. He enjoys accomplishing and finishing what he starts. He has more focus than I sometimes give him credit for.
I am happy to report that he did finish and he is reminding me that making time for crafting is important.
