Friday afternoon activity...

Friday afternoons...when spring is supposed to have arrived...we are once again digging deep into our creative brains for something to keep us all busy, inside. So I invested in a big bucket of these little things...and decided if it didn't entertain them for more than 20 minutes...then mama might stumble and knock it over. Picking them up would for sure take us through the 2 hour bewitching hour. Chopsticks would add a degree of difficulty.

Luckily, mama did not need to stumble. Charley was busy for over an hour! WOO HOO! Next Christmas you can all expect to get one of these lovely creations - that I have NO idea what we should do with. :)

Christopher used to do these when he was little. We put flat self-stick magnets on them and used them on our fridge and gave magnets to others!

Sophie made one for each of her classmates! That kept her busy for a month! :) She would do 1 or 2 a day! We love these beads! We also put magnets on them.
