Glitter, Glitter, Everywhere

I don’t usually start Christmas this early, but for some reason this year I have been thinking and planning for a while already.

So when I saw this postΒ on a friends blog I had to have a go at these cards with my kids!

Take some glue, some shaped cookie cutters, some blank cards and some glitter. Dip the cookie cutter in the glue, place on a blank card to leave a glue shape and cover with glitter..

I love the cards we made!

We did end up with quite a lot of glue and glitter left over on the trays! So we made some pictures by drizzling glue over A4 paper and sprinkling glitter over. The resulting pictures are really effective!

Our house is very sparkly this evening πŸ˜‰

Daddy’s Birthday Cards

It was Gordon’s birthday yesterday πŸ™‚ Birthdays are a great excuse for some simple crafting! This year we only had to make cards as presents had been shop bought, so while he was at work over the weekend we got designing. Star Wars is the latest craze in the house, so of course the cards reflected this!

Jasmine drew Yoda, complete with Lightsaber and stick










Thomas drew R2D2










and Ben drew .. um, what 2 year olds draw!










Jasmine and Thomas also wrote inside their cards. Every time they do any writing I am amazed as I have never done any formal writing with them but they are getting so good all by themselves!!!!
