Activity Advent Christmas Countdown – Make a Bow Wreath
B (2 1/2) is so excited about the whole thing which makes me so excited. He does keep demanding to pull out Day 25 so it will be Christmas. I think I need to store the calendar higher up somewhere.
Day 1 is “Make a Bow Wreath”. I was imagining piling on the sticky bows to cover the plate like I did once in elementary school (easy, quick, fun, and tacky). As I was explaining how to do it B said, “NO, NO, WAIT WAIT WAIT! The bow is at the top (points to the picture). Not bows all over.” So he continued to put two bows on the top and color the rest of the paper plate.
I sure did learn a lesson in letting him be creative and lead the craft. The good news is we had enough bows to make MANY wreaths to decorate our WHOLE house and dad’s office too! The bad news is I didn’t plan on the clipart being such a big deal on each card. I need to go back and look at what the pictures look like and/or make a sample craft for him to look at!
