Bean Art!

One of the crafts for the Jennifer Project is a macaroni stringing kit. Each child will get a baggie with dyed macaroni noodles and some yarn for a little beadstringing fun. Ahhh, brings back gradeschool memories, doesn't it?

At our most recent ya-ya day, why little Gracie Newsom experimented creating different shades of macaroni shells, the adult folk reminisced about the quintessential 1970's craft project - BEAN ART!!!

So imagine my pleasant surprise when I saw this item listed on Etsy. Bean art is back again!! I love it!!!!

Oh, you're so sweet. You gave Gracie a shout-out! I'm sending her the link. She'll be so proud.

I think that picture used to hang in my grandma's kitchen. Hmmm....

Neat! I remember making jewelry boxes out of cigar boxes and macaroni.

love the bean art! I always thought that you really had to be imaginative to look at a pile of beans and think 'chicken' instead of 'dinner'----still do.

wow! thats gorgeous! I wish my imagination was that strong... but alas, when it comes to crafting to food, my stomach is stronger.

Stunning!
