St. Valentine’s Day Crafting

The kiddo participated in a Valentine swap and made the cutest bunny themed valentines. He stitched hearts on this free printable bunny I found online, and then watercolor painted some watercolor paper with warm colors.

St. Nicholas Day 2015

Some pictures from our St. Nicholas Day festivities, at home and at church (with a visit from “St. Nicholas,” complete with a story, dinner & cookies, crafts, and a gift!): Of course, the Kiddo said it was not the real Saint Nicholas, since he died a long time ago.

Lent

Besides our Lenten giving that we are doing, each day of Lent we also add a candle to our Lenten spiral and move the figure of Christ carrying the Cross.

Valentine Crafting: Homemade Crayons

Valentine Crafting: Homemade Crayons

We have done some fun valentine crafting recently. One of our recent (and frequent) snowy afternoons, we made homemade crayons. This is a great way to use up broken crayon pieces or just to do something new with the flood of crayons we seemed to be drowning in.  Just peel the paper off, break them … Continue reading

They are made from poplar and were wood-burned and water-colour painted. … Continue reading
