I may be a day late and a dollar short, but I want to share my homemade Christmas with you! I plan on posting something everyday that we have made for Christmas. Some might be kids crafts but some of them are going to be presents. So I think I will have to call my Mom and Sister and ask that they don't look at my blog until Christmas. They aren't regular readers anyway but, I might need to ask just in case.
So for the first day I am excited to post one of the things we made for my parents. It is an apron where we used the kids footprints to make snowmen. My friend was telling me about how she had seen this on one of the local morning shows. I have no idea what theirs looked like, but I happen to be in love with mine! I bought the apron at Wal-mart for a few dollars and I have a huge stash of puffy like paints. I just squeezed some of the pain out into a disposable cup and painted the blue and white. I let that dry and Monday night for Family Home Evening Josh helped to make footprints of our crew. That night I pained the twins but the following morning Max and Turner made their footprints into snowmen. Did I mention that I loved how it turned out?? I might have to print off one of these pictures and frame it to add to our holiday decorations.
What are some fun things you are making for Christmas?
P.S. Three laps down--I am right on track. You know what? The struggle to make myself do it was a lot harder today but the actual physical act is getting easier! I actually kinda liked it today :)
