Recently, I gave Fiona a small painted box I made in college. She uses it to keep fairy crystals, rocks, shells and other magical little things. She's been asking to paint her own box since I gave it to her.
The other day, we made a special trip to the craft store. Elijah chose a bird house and decided it would be a gift for Pop Pop since he has a yard with lots of bird visitors. Fiona followed suit and chose to make her box a gift for Mimi. I love seeing the positive influence the kids have on each other and how much they both love their grandparents! In the spirit of their giving mood, I said yes when requests were made for glitter paint and new neon colors. ;)
They both worked hard on their pieces and I'm so proud of these generous, thoughtful children.
