The kids made these lovely tree ornaments (The Boy's are in the top row, and Little Sister's are the bottom row):
They also made these stars. We're using them like decorative trivets.

They took it so seriously! I had to swallow my worries about my two- and four-year-old using tiny pieces of glass and superglue and let them at it, because they had such a good time and were being so very careful.

I mean, I only had to tell Little Sister to take the chunk of glass out of her mouth once. (Yes, that really happened).

My favorite part of the day was making glass tiles. I supervised Little Sister making hers with the abandon that only a two-year-old possesses, dumping any mix of colors and textures she could get her hands on into the glass tray Ann had provided. Colby oversaw The Boy's methodical placement of glass pebbles and colored glass sprinkles in his frame. And I even got to make one myself!
