"The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before." President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Play Spice Containers for the kids

I took a package of wooden spools and made them into spice containers
for the PLAY KITCHEN I just made for our kids.

I glued a wooden circle to the top of the spool to hide the whole, painted each spool in a different color, let them dry then glued a button to the top.  I then used a sharpie to write the names of different spices.
