Each year I try to encourage the kids to make things for Christmas - why? Because lots of gifts that are store bought do not hold the same type of meaning for the giver or the receiver. So, we have started a tradition of making things - there are still lots of things that are purchased, but at the same time there are several gifts that are thought out and made. This year D-Man wanted to try to make "Cracked Marble Necklaces"
Here are what a few of the marbles look like before we get started on the necklace portion of things.
We did this in parts - a few days later we added on the additional pieces to make these into lovely, unique necklaces. I will have to upload the photos as soon as I pull them off of my camera... but at least here is the base of what we did!
