A lovely Christmas crafternoon

The kids have all been vomiting this week. It is deja vu from the last school holidays. Too much fun to have in one day week!

So instead of taking Maxabella and co on their very first family camping trip over at Little Eco Footprints new farm, the kids and I had a lovely crafternoon.

We whipped up our teacher gift for Doo Dah's kindy teacher
Astute readers will note these are the 12 Golden words

And the story starter stones for Nugget's Year 2 teacher
These are story starters using folktale openings

And, of course, our little Christmas favours for all the kids in the boys' classes
I got the printables for these from here

I feel great that we turned a positively awful day into a positive one.

How do you turn your frown upside down?

Very clever idea. I hope everyone is feeling better. I love reindeer noses.

Crafts are always a big hit on sick days, too. Hope everyone is well soon!!!

How clever are those rocks - haven't seen anything like that before! I've had sick kids for the last week too. Really set me back in Christmas shopping but at least we've got the handmade things done like you! Hope the kidlets feel better soon!

When my kids were sick they didn't bother with crafts or anything. It was meals in bed and TV all day as soon as any fever/headache had passed. Thankfully, they never had anything vomity, just chicken pox and mumps.

Oh, those days are awful! But great that you could turn it into something positive - and the results look great.
