We are making the yearly pomander oranges.
I gave the kids big yarn needles to make "starter holes" for the whole cloves.
(Whole cloves at Wal-mart, in a teeny tiny container, cost $7.99. If you are lucky enough to live near an Amish store, check out the spice prices---I spent $1.51 for enough whole cloves to make 3 pomander oranges.)
I believe these two little folks put more than 3/4 of the cloves into the oranges....the big kids quit quite early in the process.
