Christmas colouring with the kids :)

Home / Christmas / Christmas colouring with the kids :)

Our first activity was to draw a Christmas picture but while Kaycee and I were out Christmas shopping on Saturday we found some printed pictures that we loved so we bought them, along with loads of glue and glitter!

We had to wait for Aiden and Ella to get back from Aiden’s dad’s before we could do them but it was worth the wait! We put Christmas music on, gathered round the table (have I said how much I still love the huge table our neighbour gave us last year? No? Well, I really do!!) and got colouring 🙂

We had 4 pictures of two designs and Ella picked hers first. She picked the scene with the children opening Christmas presents, as did Kaycee. That left me and Aiden with the snowman and Santa pictures.

After I’d coloured the trees and the snowman’s hat, Ella said she wished she’d picked the snowman instead of the children so I offered to swap.
She snapped me on the offer and gave me a huge smile and a heartfelt thank you which made me happy 😀

We tried not to rush the colouring but we were all eager to get the glue and glitter out!

It was a school night and they should have all been in bed way before they eventually went but we were having such a great time I figured it wouldn’t hurt for one night.

We’ve now got to find a place to proudly show off our handiwork!
