Candy Packets? Innovation

I love these little unusual activities my children partake in.  One day I found my 8-year-old sewing these little packets to wrap his candies in.  He used a pair of boxers that he never wears and pulled out the sewing box.  This is my boy who has been known to make packets for his old toys and knick knacks for everybody’s birthday.  Usually he folds paper this way and that – this was the only time her ever sewed and these were not gifts – just packets?

I think this ability to come up with an idea, gather the supplies and then execute is slowly drawn out of kids who are in school and guided through every activity.  If lots of time is given for this sort of creativity after school then it can be kept alive but most of us are so busy.

Absolutely different strokes for different folks but I am proud that my kids are so very innovative and creative.
