Holiday Art Work

Gracie did some work making gifts for her classmates last week. She painted each of them an ornament, I added glitter and then she pasted decorations on them. She also made them each a snow ball soap which was basically grated white soap that you smoosh up and around a small toy. I don't have any pictures of that because I was elbow deep in it with her, but I do have pictures of the ornaments!

My Girl

They took school pictures of all the kids at Options, the enrichment program Gracie attends.  Her picture turned out so great!  I can’t believe how big she is, my kindergarten girl.

I took a picture of the picture so the real thing is not quite so washed out, but you get the basic idea.

November Art Wall

I’ve decided that with all the art the kids do it’s time to make a monthly display.  So I’ve started hanging all the pictures that are made on one wall that’s between the kitchen and living room.  They also always have stuff all over our fridge and freezer.  At the end of every month I’ll take pictures of everything and take it down so they can start the next months projects!  I really want to keep a record of what they are doing and I think photos are the best way since I have no idea how I would keep all this stuff forever.


I love this one, Gracie made all the leaves using her finger prints on a stamp pad.  So cute!!

Gracie’s list of the things we needed to do to get ready for Christmas.


These next three totally crack me up.  Gracie used some stickers she had to make pictures with Disney characters.  She was so busy and quiet and I was doing something else.  When I saw what she did I just thought they were so cute, and so creative!
