Let Them Help

One of the things that I am learning while teaching my girls to sew i the importance in letting them have a say in what we are doing. I did really well in letting them choose what color material to make things in.

I am now beginning to see the need to involve them in choosing not only what material to make the project out of but also letting them help choose what project to make next.

I have found that once the novelty of sewing with the "big" machine wore off, letting my girls choose what project keeps them excited and motivated in learning. Everyone likes to make their own choices. So, why not let them choose what to make?
