A while ago I made my diva a Big sister t-shirt to wear at the hospital at the birth of her baby sister. Today was a rainy day and to keep my divas occupied I thought I’d do a re-run of this activity, as my niece has not done something like this before. They each got out of their cupboard a plain t-shirt. I clipped it to a clipboard with pegs, so it wont move around and gave them the fabric paint and brush to draw whatever they desire. It was a sure hit.
In the spirit of Christmas I decided we must make Christmas tree canvases to put up in the house. I had some canvases My diva painted a while ago but didn’t really come out the way I wanted she had her own vision for them.
We made beaded candy canes today. all you need is clear beads and different colour pipecleaners. Cut pipe cleaner in desired length. Then curl the end of pipe cleaner so that beads wont be pulled out. then thread the beads onto the pipe cleaner.
My niece is visiting so in attempt to keep the divas busy I have lined up a string of activities for them to do over the weeks leading up to Christmas. and its all Christmas related activities. Today we made chalkboard paint baubles. I still had some left over chalk board paint in the colours of our Christmas tree. Pink and Purple ( my diva’s favourite colours). I bought some really cheap ugly baubles ( as we were going to paint over them).
All that is left now is to hang it up in the tree. I told them they can even take it off and draw on it every day. This was a real fun activity.
