Advent calendar

I wanted to do an advent calendar with Emily this year but didn’t want to do a candy one that you find in the stores. Who knows how old the chocolate is and do I really want Emily to eat candy every day?? Not so much…So I decided to make one myself.

It really isn’t anything to look at but my creative juices were just not flowing and I wanted to have something ready by December 1st. I stopped at Michael’s and picked up some green poster board and some foam ornament stickers. I could tell you how I did the rest but that’s pretty redundant since the pictures tell the story. Emily was pretty excited about it though. So excited that she put the first sticker on before I made it out of my bedroom on Monday morning. And she put it in the right place! I was a little bummed about that though because I wanted to do it with her and share a story. Story will be later as I think I must move the tree up since she put the sticker on again before I could get to her this morning! Eager beaver!

Give me a “hand”

Christmas season is upon us! I have some *crafty* ideas of how to keep Emily up my sleeves. I am always on the lookout for more though!

Today we made a “hands wreath” and a “hand and food reindeer”. I think Emily had more fun with the glue stick than she did with everything else! I would pass on the sites that I got the ideas from but I can’t remember off the top of my head.

The wreath turned out great in my opinion. I am over the top though and I covered it in clear contact paper because I want to be able to keep it for many, many years to some. The reindeer turned out ok. I don’t think I followed the directions exactly, as Emily’s looks kind of weird. Still looks cute though! Shows that she has monster feet as well!
