The Madhouse Mini-Testers have been hard at work all afternoon making Christmas cards and Christmas gifts. There was coloured card and glitter a-gogo !
Pierre got stuck straight in with finger painting - can you guess what this is going to be yet ?
Ta-da ! I was actually really impressed because this is made purely with finger painting and was something that 3-year-old Pierre could create all by himself (with me guiding his fingers slightly for the eyes, carrot and scarf !).
He had so much fun, he decided to make loads of them ! We've decided to give one to his teacher, one to his childminder, one to the old lady down the road and one to his godfather.
Who says finger painting is only for toddlers ? Pierre's fabulous creations inspired big sister Sophie to get stuck in too !
Juliette decided to go for a funky blue Christmas tree ...
... which she covered with LOADS of green glitter !
Big smiles all round !
How much glitter can you get on one card ? Quite a lot, obviously !
