Today, we made wreath picture frame ornaments. I had everything set out on the table and when he saw the rice in the little bowls and glitter, he got so excited. Of course that's when Holden decided it was time to eat! Aiden threw his hands in the air and exclaimed, "That's going to take forever!"
First, I cut circles out of cardboard and we painted them green. (Aiden and I both made one. I need one to put Holden's picture in too)
We then added some red "berries" and some glitter because sparkles make everything more fun!
I then cut out a picture of Aiden and put in the frame. When I showed it to him, he was so excited! He said, "Is that me in the wreath?!" I told Aiden that I needed to get a picture of Holden to put in the frame I made. (I have tons of pictures of him, but they are all on the computer.) He said, "No, Mommy. You need to get a picture of you. You're the one that made it."
As soon as we were finished with our Christmas activity, Aiden asked to do another craft. I think he's really been missing our art time. I am going to try to keep this up even after Christmas. It's so easy to skip when Holden's being needy and I'm tired, but I need to spend some one on one time with Aiden too.
