Crafty kids

IMG_4723A friend requested that I share some of the crafts that my kids have done. This is a little house done out of make and bake it clay. Susie loves to create tiny detailed things out of clay. Notice the leaded glass front door window.IMG_4724 She has put a tea light in the house making it an adorable night light. We aren’t big “fairy” people, but if I was a fairy, I’d definitely want to live here! IMG_4728This is a knife that Tommy made out of a file that he found laying around. He had to grind it down. The method includes heating the cutting edge to a different temp than the back of the blade. IMG_4722After heating it in a ground forge he set up,  he quenched it in motor oil. I’m sure he can tell you all the details, much better than I can. I love the handle. He cut squares of leather and stacked them together. Then he ground them down to the shape he wanted for his hand. I am in awe of his craftsmanship and skill. IMG_4720
