I was inspired by LiEr and made a carboard store together with Tina. It is one of her favorite toys. Many other bought toys end up in a corner somewhere, but somehow, probably because she helped making it, she plays with it all the time and that alredy for monts.
I simply melt away and get inspired to make more stuff for her when I live through situations like the one with a sponge... Tina ripped her blackboard sponge in 2 pieces once. She was about 1. 75 of a year. She came to me and cried. I told her: "Oh now it is broken", she answered: " Mommie make me a new one" I had to smile. She then suggested that we tape it,- again because she has seen me making stuff - and realized that that does not work. Next, she tried screwing it together with her play- screw driver. :)
In other situations, where she received bought things, she often asked: " Mommie did you make/ sew that for me?"
At this point I would like to thank LiEr for sharing her work and inspiring me so much. If I were a child I would like to have a mom like her:)
This is my version of Ikatbag's pig. I added some decorations and also made a daddy pig as Tina was shocked that there was no daddy pig. By the way, as I gave her the pig, she went tottaly nuts and was riding it for the better part of the day. With the lactating part, she had some trouble to understand until I showed her a video on Youtube how baby pigs drink from their mom.
