This is actualy somthing I did last week. I just got busy and forgot to post about it.
Someone in a craft group I belong to mentioned that they used to play with a knitting spool when they were little. I thought that sounded like a fun idea and thought my kids would enjoy playing with one. So this is what I came up with. It’s made out of some old baby bottle caps I was hanging on to for some reason (I have no idea why) and a few nails. The spool actualy works realy well!
