As a mom, I think doing puzzles is very good exercise for growing brains. When I was a kid, I loved doing puzzles. It was one of a VERY few things I was better at than my big sister. Which is probably why I liked doing them ... ;)
So naturally, I encourage my girls to do things that are good for them but that I also like to do.
Now, I'm trying not to force quilting on them. I don't want them to hate it because I made them do it. But if I can figure out how to trick them into doing something educational while wrapping it up in a pretty package full of fun, I will.
That's right, I'm sneaky. I'll admit it.
Here's my latest triumph.
Cleverly disguised as last week's FW blocks.
Can't believe I didn't think of this earlier!
Oh, and did I mention they both had so much fun they're BEGGING me to cut more blocks?! Mwah ah ah ah ... some things about parenting you just can't put a price tag on!
The only downside to this whole exercise? Watching them man-handle the triangles.
Bias cut edges should be respected.
