I love to find educational things to do with my 4 year old granddaughter. I also love to crochet. Annabelle is hilarious, she will pick up my crochet hook and hold it, put her other hand close to it and just move the hook around imitating me. I get such a laugh out of it. I think the lacing items will be great fun for her.
