Coughing is all you’ll hear if you listen into our house at the moment. So, when I picked the boys up from nursery at lunch time we headed straight home instead of heading out to playgroup; keeping our germs to ourselves and keeping out of the cold.
Once Rory had drifted off for his nap, Seth got stuck into a few Christmas crafts to start us off. I was keen to get the paints out to do some cork printing – I want to make snowmen, but Seth insisted on doing his old favourite – ‘glueing and sticking’.
Here are his creations:
- He made two Christmas cards. Firstly, cutting out and glueing circles to make a snowman with added googly eyes and carrot nose. Next a Christmas tree made from different lengths of rectangles with a star on top, cut out from one of Seth’s many old magazines.
- Meanwhile, I drew round an empty container to make a big circle for a snow globe. I helped Seth cut it out and he stuck on a Christmas tree and a star, then added sparkly white pom-poms to make the snow. We added some brown paper to make the base.
- Next Seth took two triangles to make Rudolf and Father Christmas. He snipped into the semi circle to make Father Christmas’ beard and finished off with glued on pom-poms, googly eyes and a sparkly pipe cleaner to make Rudolf’s antlers.
We managed to do all these crafts in super quick time. He was happy that he got to get the glue out and I have some lovely pictures on the wall. Win-win!
