Christmas Cards For Two Year Olds


We have made our own Christmas Cards this year. Little E is very proud.


To do the same you will need:
1 A5 Sketch pad
1 set of crayons, especially white
paintbrushes
Water based paint - I have used water colours, my friends have assured me food colouring does the trick too.

Step 1 - Get drawings, with the white crayon. Add some coloured bit so you know where to paint.

Step 2 - Pass crayons and paints to 2 year old and let them go for it.

I couldn't resist touching a few up to cover all the drawings with paint, but my favourites are the ones where Little E has taken it upon herself to draw a whole new picture over my careful Christmas illustrations.
