A few more summer, crafty bits I made up for Sparkle Stories.
First, the kids and I had a lot of fun making this basket.
In a nice "weave a little, play a little" rhythm, we finished it over the course of a Saturday afternoon. It's been sitting on a shelf in the dining room ever since, and I keep meaning to pull it out and add a little more. It's one of those great projects that you can finish in an hour or putter at for a whole season.
Second, go check out these morse code bracelets.
I was honestly hoping to steer the kids to pick an inspirational word to spell out, but they both wanted to do their own names, so that's what we did. Little Miss needed a lot of help, of course, but the Kid got the concept pretty quickly and wore his bracelet everywhere until the string finally snapped.
