Christmas Fairy 2013 - Day 11

Much excitement this morning as the fairy had the first clue for a treasure hunt! They had soooo much fun with this (especially with the strong toilet element to lots of the clues haha)...


Afterwards we had a catch up of the last few days advent book parcels. This is Moppet peeking through the Santa book...


...and this is an ancient Family Circle Christmas crafts book, in which Squidge has now pinpointed a toy he wants to sew. I'd better dig out my needles and thread!



We also caught up with the Creeper advent calendar...


We made masking tape to mask off little tree shapes, then did some marbling over the top...


We're just waiting for them to dry, I can't wait to see how they turn out! Well definitely be doing this again as both Squidge and Moppet loved it.

Then there was...


So Squidge and I made the snow dough from the Imagination Tree recipe. We used vegetable oil instead of baby oil this year so it was safe for Moppet to play with too...




Then finally this mornjng's activity slip suggested making some snowflake art, so, inspired by Pinterest, we got out some squares of sandpaper and cut some different lengths of white wool and saw what we could come up with. It was ok, but not the most fun ever and didn't hold anyone's attention for very long. It might have worked better with coarser sandpaper and maybe thicker wool.
