The start of Christmas crafting

The small girl and I put in a lovely and crafty afternoon making Christmas cards.
We signed up for the Kids Craft Weekly card swap which means we have to make, and send out 10 cards, and then receive 10 handmade Christmas cards back. What a great way to start the festive season.

Our cards are simple, with Possum at nearly 2 years old simple is always good when it comes to craft. We mixed some green paint and glitter with some PVA glue and used this to stick red and green coloured fancy paper onto some cut up lunch bags. When everthing is dry we will stick these onto some blank card fronts.

We had lots of fun as evidenced by the cheeky and happy grin in the quick snap I got to capture our efforts :)


  1. What a great idea Becky. Kids love getting mail so much.

  2. I am very jealous! My little ones are just that bit too small for Christmas craft - much to my dismay. At nearly 19 months they still insist on eating everything - including paint, glue, chalk, pens, shoes. Maybe by easter....

  3. This looks like a fun swap. With a 15mo in the house, not possible this year - he too would eat it all :)
