Zeke's Knitted Purse + Hand-made Wood Button

Another craft project finished by Zeke (Class 1).  All hand knit himself, finger knitted the strap and hand made the button, sanded it and stitched it on.  He's quite chuffed to have finished it and some parts of the knitting are very regular and neat indeed.

I like that the things that the children make at school, they use, when they bring them home.  Useful things.

I am really appreciating that the kids by the end of school will have a wide array of meaninful, useful and valuable life skills that they may not use every day, some of them, but they will know how to do them when and if they want to - for themselves or others.  On top of that, they have the 'knowing how to learn' - so they can apply that to some new field and acquire new skills when they want to, as well.
