We have arrived safely in South Africa after a very long 39 hour journey. It is so wonderful to be surrounded by all the familiar familial things from my childhood. And, so fantastic to see my family again. We have new family members arriving from around the world daily and it’s so meaningful to be reunited after years of being apart. I am going to share our adventures with you soon but, for now, I wanted to share a craft we did together as a family before we left home. A Good Man (daddy) has stayed home and will be joining us in a week, so it was really great for us to work together on these sweet toadstool ornaments before we parted. We have seen them on some of our favorite blogs and knew that they’d be such fun to make.
* little half round wood bits (from a craft store)
* little wooden pots (from a craft store)
* a glue gun
* permanent markers or paint
* a drill
We began by drilling holes in the little wooden half rounds. We will be threading string through these holes to hang our toadstool ornaments on the Christmas Tree.
Then, Daddy used the black permanent marker to draw the round circles for the toadstools.
A Good Man finished off when the kids were too impatient and wanted to move onto the next step.
Merry Blessings and magic,
