A bit different than the cute bunnies we made earlier out of paper cups but this time the crafts session was spontaneously initiated by the kids. They wanted to make elfs, so I obeyed orders, dug the closet for materials and then we used what I found quickly. I actually think it is pretty cool that my 3yo can already say what she wants to do, and how! (Obviously I suggested a few things in the process).
We painted the cups first, then glued the heads on, the hair and beard is wool and the hats are old birthday trumpets (which I was happy to use up…), the apron is cut out of the rests of a quilt fabric, and the kids have drawn the eyes an mouths on. Just before miss A said we need to add hands too, we’ll see.
I am not surprised my kids wanted to do something christmassy already as half of our family is on the other side of the world and we have been getting their Christmas gifts ready to be sent recently. But is it too early for Christmas crafts?
