In thinking about Lillian's limitations, I tried to put things in them the kids would have fun with. I ended up with a straw and the rest was an egg shaped piece of gum, sweet tarts, a tiny little kit kat and a rabbit shaped reese's.
If you are keeping up with my insane purchase from hobby lobby, you will see that I AM using the materials in the way I intended. This proof in and of itself, I believe, allows me to shop again with confidence...I'm just sayin'. :)
