Sharing Childhood Memories With Your Children

This weekend Honey and I were at JoAnn’s when we came upon a small section of Latch Hook sets. I have to say the memories of childhood came flooding back. Since my daughter is very crafty, I thought maybe this would be a good project for her. So I let her pick out her design and she chose this Shaggy Rainbow one.

Immediately when we got home she wanted to know how to do it. So I showed her and she caught on immediately. All she kept saying was, “Your right mama, this is fun!” I think she has completed two rows so far. I told her she would have to be patient this is a project that you finish over time not just in one day.


This is just one of the many things from my childhood I enjoy sharing with my daughter.

What are some of the things you have shared or will share with your child from your own childhood?

  1. I love it, and it brings back memories for me too. My Christmas tree skirt is latch hook and my kids helped me make it. 🙂

  2. I can’t wait until my daughter is old enough to do these!

  3. I remember those! They were so much fun. 🙂 I kinda want to go buy myself one right now lol.

  4. Wow – my sister and I used to do latch hooks too! I made a butterfly pillow out of one…I wonder what ever happened to it? One of the things that we ‘resurrected’ from childhood for our daughter was Lite Bright. Oh how much fun she had doing that!

  5. My mom used to do these all the time! How fun and I love the one she picked out!

  6. I love tis. I bought my daughter a latch hook rug to make at Christmas. I used to love making them when I was young.

  7. Joni Mason says:

    My son and I would cook together. He is now a really great cook and prepares most of his family’s meals because he wants to, even though he has a full time job and school!

  8. Jo-Ann Brightman says:

    I love/loved this , but neither of my sons was interested in crafts.

  9. What a fun project! I always enjoyed crafts with our young. My daughter liked to weave potholders.

  10. Oh wow! I forgot all about these!

  11. I used to love doing latch hook! In fact, I think I have a pillow somewhere that I made with my grandma. I can’t wait to see Ericka’s finished project. 🙂 Rylie is pretty crafty, so I’m sure we’ll be buying some of these kits once she gets a little older (and has the patience to sit and do it!).

  12. Meghan @JaMonkey says:

    Oh that came out great. What a fun project

  13. That looks like a blast!

  14. I love sharing photos and movies I used to watch with my kids.

  15. I realize now that I was pretty talented when I was a kid, I taught myself how to sew, knit, craft, make jewelry, etc. I think the activity I like sharing most that I was taught was baking, making scones, and other goodies that started with my grandmother. In my experience most kids don’t have enough patience to learn sewing, to stick with it long enough .
