My little boy was feeling a little brighter today but definitely still not at 100%.  I decided to cheer him up with a bit of festive fun…

What You’ll Need

  • Brown Sugar Paper/Card – we used A3 sugar paper
  • Scissors
  • Sellotape
  • White Card/Paper
  • Black Marker Pen
  • Brown Paint – we used Crayola washable
  • Sponge & Plate
  • Double sided tape
  • Red pom pom

I cut two long strips from the A3 sugar paper and after measuring them around Boo’s head we joined them together with sellotape to make a band.

“Sticky Mummy!”

Boo is getting really good at doing painty handprints, so this time I let him do them by himself.

He was fab!

He carefully made sure that he’d got enough paint on his hand from the sponge, and when he put his hand on the white card he even gave it an extra press down with his other hand!

Whilst his handprints were drying we cut out some circles of white card and drew the eyes in place, and then used double-sided tape to secure them to the brown band of sugar paper – along with the red pom pom.

I carefully cut around Boo’s handprints whilst he practised his cutting skills on a separate piece of card.  Using the double-sided tape we then attached our painty ‘antlers’.

Ta Dah!
