10 Minute Crafts – Make a Garden-Themed Picture

Beanie and Crevette had a little go at embroidery a few weeks ago. Beanie was leaving the pre-school she had been attending for a couple of years, and we wanted to put together a present to display in the classroom. We went for an embroidered canvas. The children chose what they wanted on there and I only supervised their work and helped when they wanted me to. I think they did a brilliant job!
