Quincy Lampshades & Son

Posted on: 15/02/2012

How can you successfully make a lampshade with a 4-year-old boy kicking around?

  1. Postpone interruptions with promises of ‘in a minute’ until child reaches non-stop whining point.
  2. Accept the disturbance and just do/give whatever child wants.
  3. Limit subsequent interruptions by giving them an ‘adult job’.
  4. Take pleasure in child’s imagination and skill.

Voila! One beautiful lampshade and one happy lampshade-maker in the, well, making.

Parents sometimes forget that kids want to be involved in what they do. It may slow you down a bit to include them if appropriate but I think the bonding benefits mean it can be satisfying too.
