Holiday Crafts

*This is posting while we are snow skiing in Red River, NM. A post on that will follow next week.*

Lillian spent a lot of time before Christmas coloring and crafting. She is extremely creative and is constantly coming up with an idea or project she wants to do. There are many things happening in this picture so I'll explain everything.
1. The people circled in the background: She wanted to create a duplicate of herself and Lucas so she could play paper dolls. I helped with tracing and cutting. She chose the clothes colors.
2. The coloring: Lillian dug through a box of cards and found an Easter card from grandparents and decided to color the characters.
3. The snowman at the bottom of the picture: This was her idea to use to decorate the house once the Christmas stuff is put away. She used glitter and crayons to embellish. I had forgotten how messy glitter can be!

By the way, this is how our dining room table looks ALL THE TIME! We simply push everything over to eat then it goes right back to art central.

Wow! I wonder if boys go through this stage as well. Good for her though. I love the paper dolls - she did a great job!

Have a wonderful and safe vacation!

She is very creative! I hope you guys are having a great time skiing! I'm missing the cool, crisp air and the snow.
