Tunes for Tots

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.

  1. Just to let you know, as my husband said “Why are they in boxes?”
    We have a song – All together row your boat – so the parents push and rock the children about in their ‘boats’.
    P.S. The knitted toys are done by me and my Mum helps out, so I am crazizly trying to get enough done! I must find some more people here to help me knit!
    Thanks for gret blog Anna – will let you know how we get on with the ‘grass’.

  2. Aw, I’m glad to hear it’s not a song about shipping your children off to another country.

    Knitting so many toys is a lot of work for two people! I hope you can encourage others to help out.
