DIY Kid’s Shaker Key Chain

Why is it that kids love anything that is not a toy?  I know when it comes to new toys, most kids are more interested in the box and the packaging the toy came in rather than the actual toy itself!  I’ve actually started saving old yogurt tubs and blueberry packaging since my kids love garbage so much. 

Another non-toy item my kids are obsessed with is keys.  Every time they manage to spy my car keys they’re all over them.  I don’t usually let them play with my keys since it’s one of my biggest fears they will lose them (or worse) toss them in the garbage or toilet!  I really started feeling bad about constantly tell Tommy and Evie “No!” every time they reached for my keys.  I figured it was time to make them their very own set, but not like the plastic kiddy ones (they already have those and they do not fulfill their need for keys!).

Supplies:

– Small plastic case (or make your own with left over plastic packaging and felt)

– Key Blanks

Mini Pom-poms

– Sequins

– Foam Alpha Stickers

– Hot Glue Gun

Jewelry Ball Chain

Since I didn’t have any extra keys that I didn’t need anymore, I bought some blanks off of Amazon.  To make their keys feel special, I personalized them by adding their names.  The key chain design came about when I was looking around the Dollar Spot at Target–shocker!  I saw this mini case that had 3 little paperclips in it.  It also had a ball chain in the corner.  I thought it would be perfect for a key chain for Evie.  To personalize it, I used some glittery foam stickers to add to the inside.  To make it really amazing, I added some gold sequins in different sizes to the inside.  To make sure I didn’t have a mishap with sequins popping out and flying all over my house, I used hot glue to glue the top shut.  The final touch was adding the gold key blanks.

For Tommy’s key chain, I used some plastic packaging I had and felt.  I cut a rectangle out of the plastic and used my hot glue to add felt around the sides.  I added black stickers to the inside for his name and instead of sequins, I added mini colorful pom-poms.  Once everything was added to the inside of his key chain, I glued strips of felt to the top to secure it.

Now Tommy and Evie have their very own set of keys they can play with.  They really love trying to put them in the door. I would say they are a huge success!
