Curly made a ship today. She chose the project, and a friend of mine who has a daughter about the same age helped us by purchasing the little craft kits and bringing them over one day. Curly painted every piece herself, and with a little help from me, glued the whole thing together, following the instructions.
I thought it turned out really cool, although it might help to take a stitch around the booms to hold the sails in place as the glue doesn't quite hold them. Still, for a seven-year-old, I'm pretty impressed. :)
