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.
We went to look at the Christmas light displays last night and the wonder and delight on their faces was priceless.
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.
I did the cutting but Miss O used the glue stick and placed the pictures. Izz also did a couple with the glue stick.
We had a lot of fun working on this project together.
Do you have any suggestions for Christmas gift ideas for children to make?
