Holiday Countdown Fun - December 6

You're such a card!
Today we will make one or more Holiday Greetings card(s) for special people/friends. We will be allowed to use scissors and cut out pretty pictures from magazines and shapes from various different coloured construction paper, and use stickers and markers and foam cutouts and buttons and glue and get good and messy. These cards will be personal. They will be fondly received by swimming teachers, library story tellers, skating teachers, cousins and of course Grandparents. In fact, they will be cherished by those last named people. Then we can write our first initial everywhere the place in the card and deliver them this week. They actually really won't be all that pretty, but they will certainly be the bestest Christmas cards I've ever seen.

I'm definitely going to need some pictures of those cards, please!!

I've been saving Christmas cards for almost a decade, knowing that *some* day we'd need a good supply for cut-and-paste make-your-own Christmas cards. Trying to decide if this is the year or not.

BTW, Tristan LOVED LOVED LOVED the cotton ball snowman so much we made three!! One snowman, one santa-face (thank god Beloved can draw) and one "dark and snowy night" random cotton balls on black contruction paper. So much fun - thanks!!!

Well, this morning we had time to make one and we rpomptly delivered it to the storytime library teacher and she loved it. Now we are all consumed in setting up the tree so not sure when we'll get a chance to make the next one, but I'll try to take a pic.

Glue is messy.
