Loring has been asking me to make a necklace out of flowers with her for quite some time. I always promise, but don’t follow through. Yesterday I dropped what I was doing and said, “Let’s make that lei”.
We collected a bowl full of our edible jasmine flowers. They have a perfect little hole in them when they’re picked. I threaded a needle for Loring and let her do the rest. She had no trouble sewing the flowers into a necklace all by herself.
Check out the Crafting Chicks blog for an adorable lei project that can be done with straws and paper with kids.
Come grow with us!
