My friends... time is flying by entirely TOO fast! I can't believe Christmas is just 2 1/2 weeks away. I always have great intentions of getting my shopping finished ahead of time, but it was simply not possible this year. I am starting to realize how much I have to do! But I love our book and activity advent because it helps me see the magic of Christmas through Little Man's eyes. It's a good reminder for me to stop and enjoy the season!
Today, we read a book that was new for me! Olive, the Other Reindeer is a silly story about a dog who thinks she is a reindeer. Little Man was laughing through the whole thing! We watched the classic cartoon about Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and Little Man loved it!! He kept saying, "Nose, nose" and pointing to all of our noses.
Here is our project of the day:
Can I just tell you how difficult it can be to get hand and foot prints from a toddler?! Luckily, Mr. Oopsey Daisy was here to help tonight, and Little Man thought it was fun when I painted his toes!
For this project:
* Paint both hands. Stamp at an angle (probably more than we did!) with thumbs pointed in.
* Paint one foot. Stamp with heel overlapping the handprints.
* Add eyes and a red nose.
I wanted to make this something that would last, so we created our little reindeer on a canvas. I want to hang this in Little Man's room every Christmas! It would be fun to do a print each year to see how he has grown.
Thanks for reading! You make my day!
