Homemade gifts
January 9, 2013 at 1:20 PM

Do your kids ever make homemade gifts from stuff they find? I thought it was so cute the other day I took my kids for a walk around our neighborhood and onto the beach in our neighborhood (we live on the James river) they were collecting shells and my oldest found a pendant like shell with a worn hole from the water and sand. He said he wanted to make his aunt ( my sil) a necklace for her birthday today. So we ran some fishing line through it and made a necklace I think it's so cute and so thoughtful my four year old even thought of it lol
