This weekend I made a magic wand for Claire out of a wooden dowel and some pieces of wood my father gave me years ago. I painted it a light shade of purple and used a second coat of translucent silver paint to add shimmer. Then I coated the tip in silver glitter and used a glossy gel to seal it.

I thought about trying to add ribbon streamers to the tip, but I concluded that a simple design was better. The magic, of course, will be imbued by Claire herself. I hope she finds many hours of fun with it.
