Through the eyes of a child everything surrounding them is magical. Kids believe in dreams and wonder, everything we rationally thinking adults (have to) deny.
Childs play is dominated by their own blooming imagination. A building block can simultaneously also be a car tool and a little kitten in the next moment. Kids do not necessarily need special toys for a rich imaginative play. More so the lesser the toy is preshaped the more freedom the child will have living out its own emotions, thoughts and imagination.
This does not mean, we can not offer something to enhance the children’s play from time to time. Even more if the offered item is handmade by us especially for their play.
Since I already was crocheting some “Schneckenbänder” for the little son, I therefore started making some crowns for him and the dolls also.
He was very proud wearing his little crown around the house, proclaiming “I am a great king!”… Of course he simply had to wear a matching golden cape also. Oh and an old branch was his scepter. And all the dolls had to wear their crowns, too. After all a great king needs to have a queen, a court and other royals around… ;)
Here are my instructions for the crocheted crown, in case you would like to make one yourself, too…:
