Threading Spool Gift

A friend celebrated his second birthday. When I asked my oldest son about gift ideas, without missing a beat he said, "Threading spools." We undertook the task of painting with great gusto.

My youngest was inspired to also do some rock painting as well. Eric and I made the threading needle and catch with a thin branch from our olive tree and some yarn. I sewed a pouch with part of a bandanna. Everyone in the family contributed. I think this was the first gift where everyone did something. I look forward to more family projects like these.

My oldest son was quite excited about presenting the gift.
