As kids go back to school, some are ready to jump right in, make friends, and get busy with the water table, while others need a little more help separating from mom and dad. So I love this craft that could make that first day of preschool, daycare or kindergarten a bit easier for a lot of kids.

At Moomah, you’ll find an easy tutorial for a DIY family necklace which incorporates photos of loved ones so your kiddo will know you’re always “with her.” Even when you’re not with her. With any luck it will make the transition a little easier for some kids. And if nothing else, give you an excuse for a little together time before the hectic schedule of the school year begins.
