action-packed pre-christmas time

Xmas 2012Crafting, painting, cooking, swimming, musicals – this dark season is the time for all artistic and indoor-sy expressions. We’ve certainly started strongly for over the weekend we’ve been painting canvases (as the resident artist never seemed to have time to put those canvases into good use), created Christmas decorations of all sorts and practiced Christmas songs in various languages.

We’ve also learned to make mini pizza faces as master Hugo borrowed a kids cook book from the school library and insisted on the pizza faces- and finally today we’ve seen the school musical called Ocean Commotion where Miss A. was a shiny little herring. So much fun, but also tiring as this little herring fell asleep in record time of under two minutes!

I hope you get some fun ideas from these, or can share other great ideas with us as there certainly are plenty of cold and dark days to come and new ideas would be highly appreciated…
