The more you use,
the more you have.” — Maya Angelou
I finally got around to making the beaded curtain that I promised Satch. His uncle saved a bunch of colorful bottle caps for our project. I used an awl to poke wholes in all the caps, then we strung them onto waxed cord, making a small knot just before threading the cap so that it would rest upon the knot. The we tied them on a tension rod and hung it in the doorway of his bedroom.
We used some of the extras for checkers, and made a board with some left over duct tape.
I'm still trying to think of what to do with rest of the caps. Perhaps make Skully pieces and teach the neighborhood kids this old street game from New Yawk.
Do you have any ideas to share?
