The boys craftiness lately ebbs and flows. I have noticed that they are interested now in tradition - doing what we do every year, just so. So now that the holiday season is upon us, they have been crafting away - in between their other projects that have been keeping them away from the glue, of course. ;)
They have made ornaments, stamped clay,
painted and decorated all kinds of things,
iced and assembled - both from scratch and from a kit they picked up along the way.
They have made gifts, cards, baked goodies, knit and more. And we have many things still to make on our list.
I love that they enjoy the tradition of making gifts, crafting, and baking in the kitchen, and that those are the things that make them feel at home and in the spirit of the season.
While they may have opened every single window in their solstice calendar in the first week, the crafting has been going on daily - so our countdown is being measured in activities, not chocolates. And with many days to come, I'm looking forward to it all!
