Tooth Pillow

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.

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.

DSC_1533I am happy to report that he did finish and he is reminding me that making time for crafting is important.
