Junior Joy of Sew gets in on the act

My nine-year old daughter made this little cushion as a welcome gift for her cousin, who was staying with us this half-term.  She chose the checkered fabric, cut it out, chose the thread, embroidered the letters, pinned it and hand-sewed it all by herself.  I only helped with pressing and with trimming the corners.  She is very proud of it and I am of her.

If you have kids, do they enjoy the same crafts as you? Or perhaps you teach children to sew and knit.  I'd love to hear your stories and see the results of their labours. Any suggestions for good future projects?
