What are you most proud of? How flexible this project is. We'll have kids from 5-12 years old - just try and find a project that will satisfy such a wide range of ages and skill levels! This project can be extremely simple for the little ones, or more complex for the older kids.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Work on a sheet of plastic or vinyl to protect your surface, and keep a small bowl of water and a damp cloth handy.
