Kids are So Creative!

My 12 year old was over at a friend’s house last weekend.

While most of the time I’m arresting her phone and entering it into our family phone-jail, this time was different. I am proud to say she wasn’t glued to her phone… this time, she was glued to a newspaper!

What? Yes. Adaline and her friend, Nicole, accidentally came up the coolest craft while experimenting with a glue gun, an ice cube and a newspaper.

I just have to share it with you. It’s bound to be the latest thing in kids’ bracelet art! Move over rainbow loom!
