Yellow Bird


We gave Kirven My First Sewing Book for Christmas. It has turned out to be a perfect activity for him because it has been something that he couldn't just do in one sitting. It's held his attention, and he has a real sense of accomplishment on finishing this little yellow bird.


We had initially tried to do a introductory sewing craft from the Enki Craft book, but Kirven was very resistant to it. I wrote a story to try to help him mentally picture the movements, and I think it did help. He seemed to like it anyway, and he approached this sewing project with a lot more confidence. The booklet that came with the bird was well-written, each step in rhyming verse, which also seemed to help.


Kirven finished it and stuffed it today, and he has promised to make Dunagan one.
