It has been a whirlwind few weeks around here...doctor's appointments, Sesame Place, Philadelphia Please Touch Museum, Emme's 2nd Birthday! I will be doing some catch up posting to show you what we have been up to.
We celebrated Emme's 2nd birthday on Saturday. The birthday girl had a blast. (Pictures to come.) I wanted to kick off the week with a craft. We made collage thank you cards with left over party streamers and napkins. Since Emme is 2, she still needed a lot of help with the glue. I let her squirt the glue but then I took a foam brush and spread it out for her. We placed the napkin down and smoothed it out together. Next came the streamers and glitter or the super messy part. Be ready for some serious globs of glue! Em had fun but immediately after she was done she was distressed about the glue, streamers and glitter stuck to her hands!
This picture shows the collage before it is trimmed and folded. Let your creations dry over night. Trim and fold to your desired size. I think they came out very cute! I like these much better than the watercolor ones we made because these are a true Emme creation!
Here is the finished card.
