Glimpses: Making Stuff with a 3-year-old

See how Mama clenches her hands together nervously, forcing herself not to interfere in the cutting-paper-with scissors process, paying close attention and watching with eagle eyes? Those scissors may be made for children, they are still very, very sharp! But in the end Hopper has a self-made train tunnel, complete with play-doh sculpture on top. Nothing beats having made something yourself, when you are a toddler.
