A week after Seth’s birthday, I realised that there are a couple of family ‘thank you’s’ I hadn’t got round to. Out came the craft box at my favourite time to do it, straight after breakfast when we’re all still in pyjamas so it doesn’t matter if we get messy.
Completely unprepared and lacking in ideas, we decided to use the paint pad to do some handprints. Seth did six and then let Rory have a turn. That didn’t turn out too well but at least he had a squidge in the paint pad. We also tried him with a crayon but that went straight in his mouth so we gave up in the end and just let him scrunch up some paper.
After lunch we snipped out the handprints and stuck them on cards. The googly eye situation isn’t good at the moment; we only have great big ones. So we made one monster card with the giant eyes and drew eyes onto our other one to make it a jellyfish.
Next time I’ll find a spare half hour for a Pintrest mooch, and come armed with ideas. Being prepared certainly makes crafting easier with two impatient boys!
