I’ve just updated the play silk listings in the shop with our new colors…….
This silk dyeing is something that I hope will turn into a small business for the girls. I really love the idea of a real business experience for them. Talk about hands on learning, right? We used silks I had in my craft stash for the first batch, but as it sells we’re going to keep track of how much money is coming in, what is selling, and what needs to be purchased for the next round. Hello math! I’m on the lookout at the thrift store for some stainless steel pots we can dedicate for dyeing too. Mostly so we can move the process outside and away from the white kitchen counter tops!
This whole kid business thing has me thinking about money/kids/chores/allowance. We have a system that has worked pretty well for us over the years. Are you interested in hearing about it? What works at your house?
And one last thing before I forget….. we’re offering a play silk giveaway on the lovely blog, feather+anchor. Do take a peek!
(ps – sorry for the pre-coffee bad shop link. it’s all good now!)
