Paper Clip Ice Skates

The link above is an inspiring blog of a montessori teacher living in Mexico. Great photos and ideas. She shares this mini tutorial on how to make ice skates with paper clips. When I was a child I had a crocheted set, either made by my talented, crafty mom or a friend of hers. I thought they were so cute, so now I’m thrilled that Jaylene can have her own as well. She’s over the moon with the thought of being able to experience snow when we visit Canada in January and she’s excited about skating as well. Although she has some concerns about falling down. I reassured her that she will indeed fall down, many times, but that it will still be great fun.
