I received the loveliest email the other day from Lisa, a mom of two who lives in New Zealand.
She told me about her music group for preschoolers that she runs called Tunes for Tots, and she sent me this adorable photo:
I can’t get over how cute these kids are sitting in boxes.
Lisa said that the parents in the group knit each child a special toy for his or her birthday. What a great thing for every kid to get a handmade toy! She also mentioned that the she is planning on knitting up some grass to use as props in some of their songs. I love this idea too!
As I mentioned to Lisa, I hope that my patterns (most of them, at least) can appeal to both children and adults, so her email made me very happy.
Thank you to Lisa for sharing her great story!
An important side note – when knitting a toy for a small child, please make sure you follow all safety precautions.
