Crafting 2014 – Christmas Trees

Friends recently introduced me to the wonderful people at SCARF (http://scarf4art.co.uk/) a not-for-profit group who recycle things that would otherwise go to landfill. My son and I made Christmas trees as presents for his nursery teachers from some scourers I brought at SCARF.

The trees were inspired by a post I saw online at http://funcraftskids.com/dyi-felt-ornaments-christmas-tree/

Recently I have made, for my son, a set to act out the song “There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly.”

The idea  and words and small pictures came from a post

and the picture of the old lady came from

I have also made for my son sleeping bags for some of his toys for when we go camping. They were made out of an old pair of his pyjamas.
 

Crafting 2014 – Sheep masks for the Nativity Play

We are doing the nativity play at church a bit different this year. Various people will be doing different things in the building (including some craft stuff). We then come together to tell the Christmas story with pictures of the various groups that belong to the church. The toddler group was asked to provide a photo to represent the shepherds minding their sheep. These are some of the sheep masks we made out of paper plates for the photo.
