Today was a busy day!
I had a Christmas Arty Party for 32 children this morning which was super fun – but totally exhausting!
With an afternoon trip out planned with Izzy to a Christmas Craft Fair at Elsecar Heritage Centre, I was thinking about what activity to do with Boo today and was seriously lacking in energy. When I got home I was blown away to find that my other half had already spent some time doing a ‘make’ with Boo!
Seriously – I was stunned!
Don’t get me wrong, my husband is totally hands-on with both children but when it comes to craft and all things glitter he prefers to keep a safe distance – something which is proving to be somewhat difficult for him given my choice of business :)
He had ventured into my ‘workroom/office’ (a.k.a craft disaster zone) - which for anyone who doesn’t know my ‘system’ must be a little daunting - and quickly grabbed the nearest tub of inspiration which happened to be this…..
Bit of a lucky dip eh?
He got Boo settled, found a pack of paper plates in a kitchen cupboard and asked Boo what he should make?
My husband said that Boo insisted that he (Daddy) helped to draw his ‘Mummy’, specifically instructing him that she needed eyes, toes and a nose, and then some string around the edge to decorate and hang.
Oh and a big spider on the back…?
So I was very impressed to find that from a totally random mix of supplies they made this…..!
I love that they were able to take a tub of completely random materials and just have fun creating whatever seemed right at the time.
Boo was very excited to show me his ‘Daddy make’!
One very happy Mummy!
Next time I just may convince my husband to break out the glitter tubs…..maybe!
