The boys and I made fingerprint reindeer today. And I just can't get over how cute they turned out!
It was a bit of an iterative process. First I drew antlers and gave them googly eyes. And then I decided that maybe they needed ears (or maybe not - the verdict's still out on this one. Which one do you like better?)
And then before I knew it there were bows. There are always bows. :) And glitter for Rudolph's nose!
And a cute saying for the inside of the cards.
And then they multiplied like bunnies.
And turned into coordinating envelopes.
But I think the best one of all is when I just let the kiddos go wild with the ink pad and a piece of paper.
Connor dotted the whole page with little reindeer while Ryan used all 10 fingers (at once) to create a veritable flood of bubbles or so he says.
Connor was so proud of his artwork.
And though we still can't name all 8 reindeer Connor remembered just where he put Donner and Blitzen and Rudolph!
