Christmas crafts

With Christmas days away, we here at the S Club decided to make ornaments for the grandparents. I really was in to this as I don't get to do many crafts with Moose (or myself, for that matter).

Moose coloring Christmas trees for Grandma Pam & Grandpa Alan, Grandma Fonda & Grandpa Randy, Great-Grandma Janice & Great-Grandpa MelVern, Great-Grandma Marilyn, and Great-Great Grandma Maxine. (that's my in-laws, my parents, my GIL, my grandma, and her mom)

Tonight, I got into the spirit with Crayola Air-Dry clay. I was just going to print ornaments off the computer and get an ink pad to have Squirt put his footprint in the ornaments. Ink pads were almost $7 at Wal-mart and this Air-Dry clay was about $5. So...yeah.

Let me just say that it was a mess! But it was a lot of fun. I worked the clay into two smaller and two bigger ovals to put the boys' hands in to. It was slick so it was kind of hard, but the boys did really well with us pushing their little fingers and pads.

I had a little leftover clay so I made an ornament to signify two of my loves:
my family and my blog.

from the S Club family to your family:
Merry Christmas!
