Crafty Cora

This is a space dedicated to images of my daughter, whom I often refer to on this blog as Crafty Cora. I am learning so much from watching her learn to engage with the world. I hope you will too. If not, then just enjoy the pictures.
She’s a lovely child.
Of course I’m her mother, so I have to say that…
But I’m pretty sure it’s true.

(Note: Crafty Cora is a reference to the picturebook Crafty Chloe, which I highly recommend to readers of all ages who love the notion of making things over buying them.)


Tape artist: In the past I've viewed playing with tape as a waste of material, but this  was fascinating to watch. Cora went all around the table and by the end had gotten pretty darn good at tearing it off the dispenser a feat that, anyone who's watched a preschooler try to master, knowns is not easy.

Stringing beads. Working on those fine motor skills that don’t come that easy to her.

We bake challah bread on a pretty regular basis. The top and bottom are traditional breaded versions. Cora prefers to make caterpillars, like the one in the middle.

So grateful to our friend Pam who gave us a giant stack of press letters from her former work as a graphic designer. I remember loving these things as a kid and Cora also seems to find them magical.
