My daughter was home sick from school today and I stayed home with her. By lunchtime, she was feeling a little better and we decided to do a craft.
I couldn't take her out to a store so I had to use whatever I had around the house. Here are the supplies I had:
a piece of foam board -
some old cards and scraps of paper -
Various stamps -
A box full of fabric - (I chose this one because it was the only thing that looked "christmas-y")
After looking at everything, we decided to make a countdown to Christmas.
First we wrapped the board with the fabric using a staple gun and masking tape:
Next we hot glued small clothes pins in rows down the board:
(I forgot to take a picture of that step)
Then we used our stamps to stamp out numbers 1 - 25 on the backs of the old cards and clip them to the clothes pins:
We used a snowflake tree ornament to "mark" our day..... we hung it on the "25" and will move it one place everyday until we reach Christmas!
