Christmas Card

I did my schooling in a Convent school and I have loved everything about Christmas since my school days. At school, we had this giant tree, which the sisters (Nuns/Teachers) decorated, sang carols (some of which I still remember) and went to Church, just to see its beauty. The spirit of Christmas, the goodness and the magic has someway of rubbing on you, even if you just watch it from a distance πŸ™‚ Unfortunately, Β Aarya doesn’t have the good fortune of going to a school but in his current school they do celebrate Christmas (YAY!) His teacher has asked the parents to send one Christmas ornament for there class tree and we thought why not make it ourselves (ofcourse using ideas already shared by some wonderful bloggers). But first up we made a small Christmas card for the lovely, supportive teachers – which turned out to be Β a glue and sequins overload, but Aarya is quite proud of it πŸ™‚

First, I divided an A4 size (regular printer size) green Chart paper in to 4 sections, cut it in the middle, drew a Christmas tree on both and cut out the pattern and let Aarya draw on it to his hearts content. He chose blue (his favorite color) and in the last 2 picture you can see Vava (our dog) and Aarya (himself) – this boy is so into making himself on anything these days.

Then Β was I gave him some glue and sequins (I bought the assortment packet which contained all the colors, shapes – but were tiny from our local craft store!)

Aarya went for the glue first and just squirted it all over the place. I asked him to put some sequins, which he did put some but was not interested much πŸ™‚ It is always advisable to protect your table with newspaper or mess-containing mat if you have a kiddo like mine πŸ˜‰

That is really all we did, and turned out quite cute, nothing fancy- but an experience – he enjoyed. I just left it to dry and wrote a Merry Christmas message inside πŸ™‚

They did take a while to dry though, that’s the amount of glue in there πŸ™‚

Are you in the Christmas spirit yet?
