I found them, Thing One counting Farm Animals for Thing Two, at the top of the stairs ( there is a good sized area for playing in the upstairs hall area). I ran back down to find a camera so I could catch them in the act of teaching and learning together (it wasn’t even “school” time, they just seem to have snuck the Farm Animals Tot Pack upstairs…lol). After I snapped the picture they said “hey! no pictures!” and I told them I just loved to see them being good brothers, and then they hugged each other – which of course needed another picture! So sweet. I love my boys!
Glitter should be an illegal substance. Just sayin…
Here are our nifty Wisemen paper-chain dolls! If you don’t already know, we are using the book Truth in the Tinsel. I highly recommend trying this out next year if you haven’t already. (And just to prove the awesomeness of it, I will say I plan to do this again next year. I think they will enjoy it even more at a little older age!) It has been a lot of fun and a great way to get the whole family involved in devotions. Our tree is filling up with wonderful handmade remembrances of Jesus’ birth story! (this is great because I don’t have many ornaments otherwise!)
I think I loved today simply because this craft didn’t involved ANY glue! I let Thing One go for it on his star, just helping to guide the string into the slits. It is a very….creative…star. Thing Two had help from Daddy – so theirs is “picture perfect,” haha.
The boys put there stars on our tree themselves tonight. Usually we have to wait for the glue to dry, so I put them up before I go to bed and they “find” their new ornaments the morning.
