So we have started Christmas Craft #1. I love watching the kids little hands at work. So focused on the task at hand, trying so hard to make their fingers to what they want...and the results...fantastic!
Inbetween helping the kids, I started to do one of my own. Mine is mostly browns, creams and green with a little red thrown in...looking forward to having this somewhere in the house come December.
Owen started work on 2 – one in all red and one with multi colours. He found that he especially likes the ones with a shank on the back that he can use to attach - rather than the ones with 2-4 holes. The former make a nice rattling noise when you shake the tree...apparently this is a very important quality. I love his creativity, he has such a different way of seeing things.
Isabelle stuck in a few buttons, but had more fun sorting and playing with the buttons and was generally thrilled to be involved in the project...she is usually in bed when any crafts of this magnitude happen. So...Nana...Nana & Papa...Grandma...this is a sneak preview of what will be under the tree for you this year. xoxo
