The truth is that I am a very crafty gal, but I don't like mess. So with a 2 year old who likes to destroy everything in her path, and a 3 year old who doesn't like when he gets a smudge of dirt on his fingers, anything other than paper and crayons is a little bit much for our household. But here we are in the UK, thousands of miles away from my surplus of Christmas decorations, so I decided I needed to take our normal afternoon coloring session to the next level. Thus began our month long
Christmas Craft Brigade!!!
We are doing a Christmasy craft everyday after naptime. We started on Thursday December first, and will go for as long as I have the supplies and patience to do so!
|Mommy's wreath. :o)|
|She got a good start...|
|Yikes...someone needs a manicure!|
|That's not where they go, silly!|
|Proud of her "finished" wreath!|
|Proud and shy guy...he did a great job, I think!!!|
Snowmen Coloring (Maxwell was pretty sick, so back to coloring we go!)
We have a door leading into the living room that needed some holiday sprucing up.
|Maxwell loves writing his name!|
|Is she going to be our "righty?"|
|Maxwell helped Daddy color one when he got home from work!|
|Ballerina girl? Daddy was about to drop her, I think!!|
So far we are having a lot of fun with these projects and I keep thinking of more and more to do. I am either going to A) run out of days before Christmas gets here or B) get in trouble for spending too much money at HobbyCraft. :o)
What will tomorrow bring? Keep checking back to see!! Happy Holidays!!!
