How to make Christmas Shadow Box

ho! ho! ho!  December is my absolute favorite month   Head over to our photo tutorial on the Pretty Paper Studio Blog to see how we made this beautiful Christmas display. I really hope that the easy crafts we make will inspire you to do crafting with your kids. Chloe and her friends had fun making this month’s craft. We had glitters everywhere and sang carols up until we were done. Once you’re done, make sure to tag our social media handles @PPSUAE and @cuddlesandcrumbs with the hashtags #ppsuae #prettypaperstudio #madewithppsuae.

Leaf Printing

We spent the evening at the park after dinner. Daddy and Kuya played basketball while we took a stroll. LittleMiss noticed the fallen leaves and flowers on the grass and asked if we can take them home. “Ahhh, it’s so cute Mama.” She was stroking the leaves and took notice of it’s bones (I don’t know the proper name), and that there was something different from each leaf. One of them was small and yellow while the other one was big and green. We slept with her nature stash from the park that night, I managed to save two leaves and turn them to art.

Hearts’ Day

Last week V came home asking me to make some cake for his friends in school when I asked why he replied “It’s Valentines Day Mama.” I browsed around Pinterest (you just get lost in there) for some toddler valentine craft and found plenty of cute and easy crafts V and I can do. V sat down with me and he absolutely love these Butterfly Valentine craft from SkipTomyLou   V went to school today with his Vday gift to his teachers and friends. He started with the two nannies in his school bus. “Happy Valentines Nanny! I have a gift for you. Thank you for taking care of me.”     Happy Heart’s day everyone!
