I did not post yesterday because I was spending the time with my precious family. Miss O and Izz were here so we pulled out the Christmas tree and decorated it. Here they are with the creation.
I also took Miss O to the Carols at Twilight in Maleny. Due to a terrific thunderstorm about an hour beforehand the occasion was relocated in the hall rather than the park. Miss O could not believe her eyes and ears at the music and colour. She sat entranced during the entire event.
This morning I helped the girls make a gift for Belle. It is a string tin.
A coffee tin covered with pieces cut from a local magazine. The paper is glued on, a hole punched in the lid and a ball of string inside. I will finish the outside with some clear varnish to seal it and we have a practical gift that small hands can make (with a bit of help) at no cost apart from the ball of string.
We had a lot of fun working on this project together.
Do you have any suggestions for Christmas gift ideas for children to make?
