A Handmade Life 2

Son 1, fourteen-and-a-half and still to be found lying on the floor creating ever-more complex wooden cities. He waxed lyrical on the subject of Old and New Shanghai when I asked him about this very modern city.
The results of Son 2's beadwork (so far!). He's making loads of little key rings with the aim of selling them at the town Vide Grenier...
Son 1's tin can handicraft, to be sold at the same event.
Can you guess what it is yet?

Is it a mobile?

Good on those lads being so practical. Great results too. I'm guessing the mystery object is a tealight holder?

Those key chains should be a big hit at the sale, they look like cute creatures. - I would also guess that it is a sort of candle holder. xo

The beading is brilliant! I would absolutely be tempted by a crocodile or turtle.

Wow, I am impressed with your sons.

Your boys have made some things to be really proud of - very saleable. I think the mystery item is a can (baked beans?) hole puched to let the light of a tealight out?
