Jake's Chain Mail
Jake found someone online who showed how they made their own suit of chain mail. Jake was very enthused by this idea and brought it up repeatedly until his mom purchased him the recommended supplies--a roll of wire. I was surprised when I saw the wire because it's not very heavy gauge, but it's heavy enough that an eight year old can't cut through it, so we have to help him out. The guy in the video said it took him three years to finish his chain mail. I tried to persuade Jake to make his chain mail for a doll, but he wasn't interested. He wants to make if sized to fit him.
