This morning I gave Amelia her Christmas box which I wrote about here and she like any sane person went straight for the chocolate calendar! Then the main aim was to get everything out the box so she could get in it…duuh!! She did however really enjoy taking things out the box especially when she saw Curious George and Peppa Pig. Can’t wait to get using all these Christmas bits to get into the festive spirit! It really is a great way to kick of Christmas, cracking out the jumpers and pj’s but not the tree just yet…
We also made some Christmas cards later today. I popped to Tesco and saw that these Christmas craft bits were reduced to clear so were super cheap. I wasn’t sure if we were going to make cards but when I saw all this stuff I couldn’t resist.
Went with the reindeer theme and did finger prints on one set of cards and a foot print on the other. This didn’t go swimmingly and there was paint EVERYWHERE!!! I turned my back for about ten seconds to wipe Amelia’s foot and she went straight into the paint dish and covered herself in it so it was emergency shower time. Seriously…paint EVERYWHERE!
I am actually really pleased with how they came out. I like that they look smart but home-made at the same time and that they include Amelia. She’s still too little to be cutting, sticking and drawing things so at least some foot and finger prints means that she can be a part of our first Christmas craft that all our lovely family and friends will receive (Sorry for the spoiler!)
Have you done home-made cards with your little ones before?
Thanks so much for reading!xx
