Reindeer Craft

I managed to get a little craft making into the day, especially with my nephew.

Firstly we made some "Twig Reindeers" - as my brother lives on a property there was no shortage of branches / twigs to choose from.

Just choose some that are a "Y" shape and this is the result after adding a couple of google eyes and a pom pom nose.

Next we gathered up some more twigs and toilets rolls and made these two reindeers - they look so good!

Both the above ideas were sourced from Pinterest.

All the children participated in  making the Christmas Tree decorations, however I was too busy to take photos.  By far the favourite was the "bird in the wreath" - see here for the original post.

I am not sure if I will have time for any more craft before Christmas, although I should of taken photos yesterday of the inventive ways we were wrapping gift vouchers - I can tell you, that not one of the finished gifts looked like a gift voucher. Maybe it is better that I did not take photos, as family members read my blog.

Hope you are all organised for Christmas? For the first time in many years, I am not at all organised, so I had better get a wiggle on ...

Until next time, Take care
