Hi Hannah, thank you for your thoughtful comment. To be honest I totally agree with you. I have two children and girl and a boy and we do all our activities together. My son has made “traditional girl” crafts, as well as boy things and vice versa.. but I have observed.. that some things simply appeal to boys more and vice versa. I think it is just the way it is. Also, some parents *think* like that. I aim to encourage everyone to get crafty – especially those who think boys don’t like it. They do! Boys do craft. They love it as much as girls do. I am very aware of genderizing – and my kids both have tea sets and train sets alike. I do my best not to genderize, but at the same time, respect that there IS a difference.
