Solving a key problem... or so we thought
Little kids really like keys. Boo really, really, really likes my keys. While Boo was napping, Cakey and I decided to make Boo a set of keys – copying my own set.
We kept it pretty simple. I drew the keys on thick card, Cakey decorated them and we cut them out. We covered the car key in foil just for fun and Cakey made my decorative keyring out of thick cardboard. Our hole punch kindly made a hole in each paper key into which we thread small pieces of pipe-cleaner to make keyrings. We then thread them onto a larger pipe-cleaner. Cakey is only just getting the hang of twisting pipe-cleaners closed so this was a little frustrating for her (up until now she has sticky taped them together).
I found a spare lanyard and we attached our brand new set of keys to it. Both Cakey and I were very pleased with the keys.
Cakey enjoyed playing with the keys and when Boo woke up we excitedly gave them to her. She HATES them and refuses to wear them around her neck. Oh well.... you win some, you lose some.
