"Children do not need to learn to be better, told what to do or shown how. If they are given access to enough of the world, they will see clearly enough what things are truly important to themselves and to others, and they will make for themselves a better path into that world than anyone else could make for them."

                                 Finger Knitting

Well, last night my daughter and I were going through some art kits that we had picked up at a yard sale and we came across one for knitting. Now, I will be the first one to tell you that I do not know a thing about knitting, ( or sewing, or crocheting) and the instructions in this kit made for children had my head spinning. But the kit did have a lot of good yarn and I remembered seeing something online about finger knitting. So, I pulled out my trusty laptop and within minutes found this simple way to do finger knitting. So simple in fact that  I think a 4 or 5 year old could learn to do it. Within minutes my daughter and I were quickly knitting together bracelets! This simple technique kept her busy for over 2 hours and all it cost was the price of yarn. 

This could be an easy activity that the kids could take on trips or sit quietly and work on while waiting at the doctor's office. But before you go and think this is just one for the girls:

Ok, hubs was dressed down for the nigh! I told him if I lose any readers it is because of this photo, lol! But seriously I wanted you to see that this was an activity that everyone quickly became interested in and wanted to try their hand at.

Even my teenage son, Bret, joined in and made a couple of bracelets for his sister.
