Arts, crafts and naked time, all rolled into one

Mom recently gave us a subscription to the Disney Family Fun magazine, which we love. It’s filled with great ideas, fun recipes and cool projects. A couple of weeks ago, this necklace holder caught Ava’s eye:

I found a few die-cut pieces at the craft store, and armed with washable paint and paintbrushes, the girls set to work on their own versions.

Ava was very precise in her painting and assembly, and she was more than a bit irritated when I wouldn’t let her use the hot glue gun.

Here are the finished pieces—Olivia’s is on the left, and Ava’s is on the right.

Bryan will hang them in their rooms. I’m expecting a few of my own necklaces may go missing, but at least they’ll have a good home!

    Cute!! What a sweet idea! I love that they’re old enough to sit down and do projects together.
