Here is what we’ve been up to over the last week.
Day thirteen – post Christmas cards to everyone in the street (this is a lovely tradition that everyone in the street observes. i’ll really miss it when we move)
Day fourteen – Make a Christmas Rhyme Sack and use it (see earlier post)
Day fifteen – Celebrate Christmas at Sudley House. The annual Christmas festivities at Sudley included crafts, Victorian cards, storytelling and our family favourite – Sketchy Santa! Visit this Santa and he will draw a picture of whatever you ask. E asked for a nativity scene and G for Rudolph.
Day sixteen – It’s the Christmas service at Church today
Day seventeen – Decorate the house ready for Christmas!
Day eighteen – Christmas parties at school today
Day nineteen – Make place cards, coasters and menu holders for the Christmas table. We ‘cheated’ slightly and used a great kit from Phoenix cards.
Day twenty – Make reindeer cakes. We have made these before and this year used the recipe in the BBC Good Food magazine.
Day twenty one – Make wrapping paper. This year we fixed metal Christmas cookie cutters into carrots (the carrot forms a handle), dipped them in paint and then printed onto parcel paper.
Day twenty two – The Toast nativity set is at our house today.
Phew! up to date
