Vinyl - A Good Project for Kids

As a mother, I'm always reading magazines like "Family Fun" to try to find creative projects for my daughter.  But what I've come to realize is that the projects Imani enjoys most are projects that make her feel like she's grown up.

She is nine, after all and gluing macaroni to construction paper isn't really her thing anymore.

So in all of our home renovations and decorating adventures, we try to include Imani as much as possible.  It is her home too, and I hope that by being a part of it all she feels as much pride as we do when we look around our home.

I also hope that by being a part of it all, she grows to develop a good sense of style in decorating her own home some day.

Recently, when I ordered a few pieces of vinyl from Shelley at Wonderfully Wordy, I decided I would let Imani complete one of the vinyl projects on her own.

It was nice to just sit back and watch.  She started with these salt and pepper shakers that I found at Hub's Place a few months ago for $1.

Next, she removed the backing and placed the letter in the center, rubbing it onto the shaker.

She slowly peeled up the paper to reveal her finished product.

How cool are those? Not bad, considering I didn't have to do anything except order the vinyl!


  1. I really like those, I'll have to visit Wonderfully Wordy!

  2. Such fun. Pride of ownership is a powerful thing. Imani did a great job!

  3. SO great! i LOVE that the look!
