The kids have been crafting


Amelia received these wooden words from Father Christmas, and yesterday she finished painting them.  She was so pleased with how they turned out and I know they will look great on the aqua walls of her bedroom.  We had quite a bit of fun taking this picture – that’s Rory holding onto the dream (he he he, pun intended).

Rory was busy with some decorating of his own.


This is his capital R, that he painted, then covered in monsters.


He took ages selecting just the right stickers – I am glad he didn’t end up choosing the skulls.


Michaela had a ball painting her capital M.  Just like her hair, her M is covered in every decoration possible.  She is not at an age for restraint, when it comes to all things glittery and pretty.


This was a great project for the school holidays.  The kids now have something each (that they have made) to decorate their new bedrooms.  It was easy enough that even the youngest could participate (because we chose to use stickers) but had enough challenge for the eldest (who painted her own patterns).  All I had to do was wait for ages as stickers were chosen, do up the smocks and mix up the desired colours of paint.

  1. Hi,

    I found your blog while looking for wooden letters to purchase. I love how your daughter decorated them. I noticed you are in Australia and I will be in Melbourne in 2 weeks and thought I might be able to buy some while I am there. Could you please email me where you bought your letters. Many thanks, Nicole
