So we got some junk mail today from a car dealership that included a fake key. My 2 year old loves cars and therefore keys by proxy so I told him he could have it. Immediately after this my "Mommy senses" kicked in and I wondered if it was a great idea to give a small chunk of metal to someone who still doesn't quite grasp that not everything is intended to be carried in his mouth posing the much feared swallowing hazard.

Presto! A crafting opportunity was born. Using some of my left over felt I quickly cobbled together a doubled sided car with a yarn loop sewn into the middle. A few wheel and window embellishments later I presented the kiddo with his very own key chain.

After seeing how easy it was to create and recalling that Father's Day is right around the corner I figured I'd come over and share the idea here for anyone looking for a quick and easy craft they can help the kids make for Daddy. The car could easily be substituted out for his special interest and even younger kids can help with making pieces and deciding where to put them.

Finally a male equivalent to the macaroni necklace.

That's a great idea!

I'm always looking for simple crafts I can do w/my toddler.
