I had some major clean up to do, so I turned Fuss and Bug loose on some crafting materials. I did let them use the beeswax which was a treat. Due to expense I usually like to monitor this activity, but I just really needed a minute and they love it so much. Fuss made this beautiful cornucopia of white chocolate (one of his absolute favourite things).
Once I was finished, I sat down with them and we made paper snowflakes which was very appropriate since it was totally snowing outside!
Fuss put an outline where he wanted to cut and made the snowflake as symmetrical as possible. This, by the way, was the first time he pick up and used a writing utensil properly on his own. That was a thrill. He usually rests the pencil on his ring finger rather then the middle one.
He then cut around his outline. I’m not entirely convinced that using scissors with your eyes closed is a hot idea, but they were kid’s scissors.
And Fuss with his final product. He made several of them and hung them around his nature table. It looks as lovely in there as it does outside.
We do this every year and it’s one of my favourite activities.
Enjoying the journey, Amanda
