With only 45 days to go until Christmas and counting I have decided to get Savvy! I have already enjoyed baking Christmas Star biscuits with the kids now it's time to get creative. I bought some gold and silver craft spray paint at the weekend from a local craft store now all I had to do was to put it to good use. So this earlier on this evening we took our Cocker Spaniel 'Ben' for his evening walk, I dug out the old wicker basket from the garage and gave it to the kids... we live close by to an old disused railway track that is now a nature walk and gave them the task of filling the basket with foraged festive foliage!!! When we returned they had a basket full of pine cones, twigs and some other strange bits they had collected on the way !!! So this weekend they can have fun OUTSIDE !!!! Spraying their finds with the festive gold and silver spray paint. Just as long as they don't get it on my walls or patio as a sobering reminder come summer of next year !
We can keep the decorations for next year and the children will remember enjoy helping to collect them and all for the cost me of a couple of cans of spray BARGAIN!!!!
