It's Never Too Young . . .

Monday is craft day at the local library which is situated in the LCLC - Lunenberg County Lifestyle Centre . I've been taking my 6 year old granddaughter, Gale,  there after school. Today, the children were introduced to needle felting. Gale looked through a book on 3-D felted animals, and choose to do a penguin. She was the only one to tackle a 3-D object. The directions were pictorial with written directions for each step (shown in the first photo). She read each direction and followed along with the photos. I helped her with the small parts : eyes and beak. She did the rest. Of course, she had to be reminded to watch what she was doing or she could stab her fingers. She also had a tendency to not hold on to the yarn with her left hand. All in all, she did a good job! She was a very happy camper!!

I have a feeling she will want to do a few more felted animals.
