Cards, cards, cards
Every year, I always end up pushing Big (and now Littler) to make aaalllll the cards ... at once. Once we get started, I hate to stop. So we don't, until there's a revolt. I think they did fabulously.
Last night's Paint Drumming project dried beautifully, so I cut them in half and glued them to blank cardstock. I dug up some fancy paper scraps and asked the kids to choose some to add to their paintings.
As soon as Littler got his hands on the silver squiggles print, he got his trains and rolled them up and down the "track." He also found some Thomas stickers and started sticking them to all of the silver scraps he could find, so I quickly glued long pieces to cardstock. Big wanted in, so we added some letter stickers and practiced spelling "CHOO!CHOO!" Both kids worked on sticking from left to right, so on top of the #finemotorskills practice, we also got in some #earlyliteracy. Score.
With leftover cardstock and fancy paper scraps, we also made some gift card holders!
Now to get these mailed before the new year.... .. #earlylearning #invitationtocreate #christmasactivities #smockson #getcreativewith #cardboardschoolhouse
