Out of the blue 5 year old Maisy came downstairs with an idea for a project. While starting the project, she asked me to get the camera and take pictures because she wanted to be like a mommy blogger, but instead she wanted to be a kid blogger and write a post. I jumped up and got the camera. A few days later we sat down together and I typed this post while she dictated. I loved that this was an enjoyable, creative and expressive activity we could do together. I’m proud of the way she is able to retell her story and the enthusiasm she has for sharing her experiences. Here is my daughter’s first blog post.
The idea came to my mind to make shoes for my stuffie rabbit, Pinkie Pie. Well, I thought I was going to only make shoes, but then I thought, “Hmm, maybe I should make a dress.” Then I thought to myself and I said hmm, “How can I do this?” Then I came up with an idea. Then I did my idea. I found cloth in the cloth drawer and I also found buttons. I decided to use those to make clothes for my bunny.
1. I got a strip of fabric from the fabric drawer and then I wrapped it around her waist.
2. Instead of sewing the clothes together I used buttons to attach the pieces of fabric because I don’t know how to sew yet. I attached two strips of fabric to the dress fabric for the shoulder straps. I used buttons to connect the back of the dress and attach it together. I had a hard time doing it and I tried anyway and it worked because I tried so much and I was done.
3. To make the shoes, I got a toilet paper roll, with no toilet paper on it and I cut it in half and then I drew on them because I wanted to put decoration on them. Then we slid the shoes on her feet.
4. I put a purse on her because I thought it was beautiful and it was also in the fabric drawer.
I really wanted to be a mom blogger, but I am still a kid, I said to my mom, “I think I want to be a kid blogger.” I asked my mom if I could do it. My mom said I could and I did it. I thought it would be fun for other kids to see that making the clothes for their dolls would be really really fun and I wanted them to know how they could do it. I didn’t know how to blog about it and now I do because my mom is teaching me how since she’s a mom blogger.
