Rugrat in the bindery

I've been sharing my bindery with a two year old this week so not much progress on my own work but it is a delight to introduce young children to the world of books. Matilda has been engrossed, enthusiastic and proud of her developing fine motor skills.
Together, she and I made her first book - a simple concertina structure in which she then 'wrote' her story before using the book for scissors practice. Paper and boxboard offcuts have been retrieved from the waste basket and put to good use with a roll of sticky tape and a glue stick. She's now aware that her cousins have been allowed to use the nipping press and board cutter since they turned three and is counting down to her next birthday.
