I had almost forgotten all about it, when Freyr´s preschool teacher mentioned it the other day, telling me how much fun she had with her son, picking seaglass at the beach, where I used to spend so many day´s of my childhood. On the following weekend I decided I had to do the same thing with Freyr and Bidenam. The two of them where really enchanted and Freyr even screamed: "this is so much fun".
Now we have 2 pretty jars, in the livingroom, filled with seaglass. The boys love to take the colourful glass out and make patterns out of it, just holding it in their hands, looking at it... like I said: there really is something fascinating about seaglass! In the beginning I wanted to make something out of it together with my boys (mobile, candle-light-jars or mosaic-pictures)- but maby we´ll just keep it in the jars - we really love it that way!
