Today’s activity was to decorate Serenity’s room! I bought a pink tree for her last year, and this year picked up a pink tree skirt and some white and purple felt ornaments to add to her purple snowflakes. She was so thrilled! She looked up at me and said, “I’m a big fan of ornaments!”
She might be out-crafting me! She asked all day to do ornaments, so I pulled out a craft kit that I’d bought for later in the month. Then she wanted more! We read a bunch of library books that I’d requested, and one of them was The Wild Reindeer by Jan Brett. So we decided to make some reindeer food. It’s very easy and fun, you just take regular oatmeal and stir in some glitter to make magic oats for the reindeer. Sprinkle on the lawn Christmas Eve. We put the finished baggie into the pocket for December 24th so we remember to do it. She was very serious, choosing just the right color glitter (pink iridescent) and measuring the oats into the bowl and stirring it together. Such fun!
