I’ve said it over and over again that P1 is rather arty. So am I, that’s why we have a ginormous art box. So it was really exciting when Furniture Choice contacted me about their Create Your Own Christmas Card competition to win a Stompa bed and they kindly sent us a fantastic array of crafty Christmas bits to help P1 with her card making.
I have to admit that I have a tendency to get a little hands on when we do art activities at home. P1 knows this so she kindly gave me the duty of cutting her creations out, however, everything else was the work of my nearly 5 year old.
Since the bag of goodies arrived P1 has been bugging at me to start card creating so last night after she’d got back from the zoo, I allowed her to have an arty evening and a late night!
I decided that we’d only use the materials that were given to us so firstly, we talked about what she’d like to put on the card and how she was going to do it. Then I set out the materials into little pots to make it easier for her.
She’s expecting a card in return from Santa. I wonder how creative Father Christmas is… I just want to say thank you to Furniture Choice for giving P1 such pleasure… And also thank you for the little bits of glitter that happens to be absolutely everywhere!!!!!! Despite the several times I’ve hoovered. P1 definitely enjoyed the glitter.
