Glass Blowing with the 10 Year Old

Meet my younger son Jared.

He's a bit crazy :D

But we like him that way.

Anyway, for his birthday he wanted to go to Hot Sand in Asbury Park, NJ and do glass blowing, like I did for back in December.  As luck would have it, just a few short days before his birthday, there was a Groupon for half off Hot Sand! (yeah me!)

We finally got there about a week ago. 
While their only rule is that you have to be at least 9 years old, be smart and realize that if your child can not sit still and listen to directions, maybe you should wait until they're a little older. 

Remember the glass is HOT!

And you have to blow quite a bit!
Check out that hot red glass!

After this they put it in the oven to bring the temp down slowly & a few days later you can pick it up.

Here is Jared's Blue Glass Ball. 

OH and since I'm talking about Jared, I should mention one other thing.  Last night his Minor Little League team won their division Championship!!!

It's been a good week to be Jared!
