The girls were here last weekend and we had a great time, as usual.
Snow White found an electric candle we use in the window at Christmas time. She and Rose Red played with it for almost half an hour. Who knew an electric candle could be so much fun!?
Pa helped them make plaster of Paris casts of their hands as a gift for me. They loved doing that and then enjoyed showing me how the molds fit their hands.
The girls have been fascinated by the Christmas shadow boxes I’ve been making.
I helped them make their own. They picked out their own cards and made the boxes.
Then they spread the glitter glue. They were patient with having to wait between inside and outside coats while the glue dried.
They picked out embellishments, with just a little editing from Ma.
Rose Red is especially interested in crafting, creating with paper, scissors and glue, etc. She was in her element!
They were so happy with the results that we ended up making another set of boxes.
Children seem to find it easy to take great pleasure in the moment. They’re not worried about the past, not dwelling on the future. Maybe that is part of what makes grands so much fun.
