Wow! I love this! I am currently a student studying Early Childhood Education, and while doing some research for a project I came across this article of yours. I am also a mom of two, so I can relate. And you seriously hit it right on the nose. I also do believe that it can be easy to focus on the quantity rather than the quality. I think that a child's craft or project is only truly their own when you allow them to express themselves through their own exploration and knowledge they already have. Thank you for sharing this, can really make a person think.
