Beadutainment

Gotta love being a crafter on days like today! Because of Spring Break I agreed to watch the two girls from next door today and Monday. A bucket of beads I'll never use, some safety pins, and some sequins and I've got hours of almost quiet with these three (which is rare, lol)! With a boy in the group it goes beyond the "princess" jewelry making and those pins of "jewels" are suddenly princesses and dragons themselves with Michael building castles with cannons and whole storylines are being played out while they create. A hint for a project like this - I laid down an old baby blanket that pretty well covers the table. This keeps the beads from rolling onto my hardwood floor and becoming cat toys!
