Try It Tuesday: Washer Necklace
This was a fun and easy gift that my 4 year old son made for his sister and his Godmother. We just went to hardware store and picked out some large washer since we could but single ones and bought some cording from a craft store. The paint is simply fingernail polish.
He did all the work himself. It was a simple project but did have may steps that took time. He had to paint 2 coats of fingernail polish on each side. So, he painted one coat and then we played a game while it dried, then he painted the second coat, which we let dry overnight. The next day he repeated those steps. We allowed another day because he wanted to add spots to one of them.
Then I told him how to loop the washer through the cording to hold it in place and then tie the ends together. He was very proud that he could make this gift all on his own just by following my verbal intructions.
