best dollar ever spent

H bought this crystal from a craft store for $1. It may just be the best dollar she's ever spent. When the sun shines through her window, it produces little rainbow spots all over her room.
(Are you gasping at the paint color? It's awfully bright. But it was her choice, and it was the first thing we did when we moved into this house. She was two at the time, and we were trying to make the transition easier on her.)
She's had it up for about a month, and the kids still squeal with excitement when they see the rainbows. I love how the simplest things bring them the most enjoyment.

My in-laws got us a solar-powered rainbow maker with 2 crystals that rotated in the sun. Too bad our house has such lousy sun exposure--and that the kids eventually broke the connection between the solar panel the motor. We kept the crystals hanging anyway and truly, they LOVED the rainbows. We need more crystals. Glad to know they're available for only a buck somewhere!
