  1. Another day of christmas crafting.

    Some people will call it avoidance of housework, ironing, paperwork. I call it preparation for the mindees craft this weekend.

    We then threaded baubles on (fine motor skills) added tinsel at the top and then threaded some ribbon to hang it from. It took 3 boxes of baubles from a pound shop.
