Christmas Keepsake

A fun art project to do with your little ones and to keep for years to come.
The reindeer is the child's hand. The footprint is the sleigh. Santa's head can be a thumbprint. The child or the adult can add a few special touches to complete the project. Use some glitter for the stars and paint snow for the bottom of the picture.
This can be tricky getting the right placement. Painting their feet tickles them. A little bit messy as well. But I have done this for years and the parents love it.

On another note my computer died. I am using our backup which is slow as Moses. I don't know how long it will last. So if I disappear and you need me, shoot me an email.

Hope you are checking off your Holiday nice not nauty.

Maybe get yourself and iPad instead of a computer? Even my Kindle Fire does documents and e-mails, movies and everything but a phone and a camera.
I love that Santa picture I think it's ever so clever. Nan
