A Messy Afternoon

I started writing our Christmas Cards this morning and discovered we didn’t have anywhere near enough. This provided me with just the excuse I needed to get the kids crafting!

So out came the cards, the paint and the Christmas themed sponges. I used plates for the paint so the kids could dip the sponges in easily, however after the first couple of cards I realised it would be more successful if they painted the sponge rather than just “splatting” it into the paint πŸ˜‰

We didn’t have many blank cards left (obviously a trip to the craft shop is needed!) and the kids were of the opinion that they hadn’t done enough painting, so they moved onto paper and they didn’t stop until we ran out of drying space!

  1. The cards look lovely and your children are too delightful for words as they work there, busy as little bees.

    • Thank you! They were certainly busy! I usually take loads of pictures but didn’t have time today as I ran to and from the kitchen with their finished paintings πŸ˜‰

      • The pictures you did take were great and I just love the atmosphere of it all. Have you decorated your tree yet? If not, do share it with us, that also really makes it Christmassy.
