We did some crafting the other day.
Here we are prepping.
Basically you put tape on a canvas (which were 40% off at Michaels when I bought them). And paint the rest of the canvas. Then remove the tape. So easy.
I did the tape for Nathan's. The rest of the boys did theirs themselves.
My very dear friend, Tarrah, was in town. She took a break from her 4 kids to come be with me and help with my 5. That's a good friend. She also made some delicious snickerdoodles while we were crafting. We had Christmas music playing and cookies baking. It was lovely.
My four year old did just fine. The best part is you can't mess it up this craft. Do your kids have meltdowns when they make a mistake with something permanent like paint? Mine do, and I love this craft because of that.
Tarrah assisted him. I loved having a friend in town. Many hands make light work :)
I let everyone make whatever they wanted, as long as it was Christmasy.
Asher was disappointed because he wanted to do something Texas Rangers. Life is full of heart aches, and this is one he had to live with.
They picked their own colors.
What in the world?

Samuel's tree, modern style
Joseph's tree (I liked his the best, but don't tell the other kids I said that).
I'm a little too cool for this photo sesh.
Or a little too crazy.

Now go to Michaels and get some craft supplies. You'll love this one!
