Christmas Ornaments

He worked so hard on these that when it came to giving them as gifts (as was the original plan) he had difficulty parting with them. Admittedly I did too, so as a compromise he said I could give his grandparents pictures of the ornaments (so they could still be proud of what he made). I also suggested that in addition, he could make his Grandmothers some Shrinky Dink earrings out of his three favorite ornament designs:

Pretty cute huh?
