Plastic Bottle Viking Longboat (part one)

Plastic Bottle Viking Longboat Tutorial (1)


LittleMan has inherited his mother’s knack for dreaming up big projects and, while we’re not always keen to jump on board with his time consuming and expensive ideas, we do try to support him when possible.
This plastic bottle Viking longboat was one such idea that we could get behind. (more…)

DIY Gallifreyan Writing Christmas Ornament

All this month I’m going to be sharing with you crafts and activities that I’ve made with some custom Gallifreyan writing which I got from Applique Geek. Applique Geek has something for every fandom so be sure to check them out and let them know Suzy Homeschooler sent you.

Last week we shared some free printable Gallifreyan Writing Activity Mats, this week we’ll be sharing another free printable of Gallifreyan writing, along with some ideas to make Gallifreyan writing ornaments for your tree.

For our first ornament idea you’ll need our free printable (which you can download below) and some pipe cleaners, I used white.

Child-Made Lollipop Christmas Puppets

For today’s post I’m joining with Emma, writer of P is for Preschooler, to share with you two versions of child-made Christmas puppets. So when you’re done reading this post be sure to pop on over to see what Emma and her lovely daughter came up with.

For LittleMan’s puppets, we were inspired by the classic Halloween craft: lollipop ghosts. I suggested to LittleMan that if we used red tissue paper instead of white, we could make the lollipop look like Santa. LittleMan then suggested green for an elf and yellow for a reindeer. I suppose you could also use white for a snowman but we didn’t go that route.

Paper Bag Village

I am extremely lucky that my husband is a very supportive man as well as a hands-on dad. Yesterday I was feeling a bit overwhelmed by my to-do list what with holiday prep, lesson planning, cleaning, and social obligations so he offered to take the children off my hands for a couple hours. He was even thoughtful enough to snap some pictures so I could see what they got up to while I was off doing my own thing.
