Christmas Cards

I was excited to get into another little seasonal creative activity with Bean a few days ago...making Christmas cards! Simple and fun, as well as being a creative alternative to getting something necessary done ;-)

The invitation looked like this:

And it consisted of:
  • Blank pre-cut cards
  • Christmas themed stickers
  • Christmas self-inking stamp
  • Dot art bottles
  • Markers
  • Crayons
When Bean woke up from her nap she went straight for the cards and stickers (her current obsession!), and relocated them to the floor... 

...She kept busy sticking and stamping, and I handed her fresh cards as they got filled up...

...She didn't take the slightest interest in any of the other art supplies I put out, and I wanted to let her create the way she wanted...

...She thought the Santa stickers were especially fascinating, and so I used it as an opportunity to introduce the concept of Santa and Christmas (which involved repeating 'HO HO HO!' over and over to Bean's giggles of delight! :-)...)

The finished cards were really cute and I had better get them mailed out! (bit behind this year!!!)
