Well, as I have a 12year old (who is going to be doing alot more and harder crafts) has done the cut out letters and laminated them to go on a handmade wreath(today) which we are doing over a few weeks not all at once. plus she is doing a cake maybe next week for Gran that is fed sherry/brandy every week for a few weeks before marzipaning and icing (obviously dont do the alchol bit with young childreN) so it does take time and have to space it out
.With the younger children, will probably start and put away things they have made till later, I dont always do things in one sitting ie cards could take a couple of sessions.
Plus not all children come every day.So its getting everyone involved in making things on different days--takes longer if you know what I mean
Im rambling byee:blush:

It's too early for Christmas crafts for me too. In saying that I did a big Crafty Crocodiles order at the end of October and bought a few things for making Christmasy things. Will be doing crafts in December though, thinking about it December is scarily close :panic: Hx
