So school are doing to printing.
It can be whatever, however -e.g. Glitter, cotton balls etc as they take photos.
I'm not very creative (ideas at least) but want something cool.
Any ideas or suggestions?

I'm doing quite a basic one with DD (she is only 2). Will make a Rudolph face by making a brown footprint, heel at the bottom to make his face, a red pom pom/glitter whatever surfaces from the craft box for his nose and 2 handprints for his antlers.

I'm hoping that is a realistic aim for an over enthusiastic mother toddler!

Last year I set her loose with a big bag of glitter and Christmas stickers. They were unique. Very.

How old are your DC? Are they old enough to be let loose with free design or are they young and need guidance? If they are old enough, I think the coolest design will be something that is entirely of their creation. Not to mention taking the heat off you!

But there must be a little bit of glitter somewhere wink

An easy one to do with small children is to paint their fingers white, the thumb and heel of the hand red and palm pink. Keeping fingers together and thumb stuck out make a handprint on the card.Turn card round and you have Santa's face. Add two finger print black dots for eyes and a white thumbprint for the pompom on his hat.

I'm thinking of giving ds sequins, glue and a green triangle for a tree and standing well back.

Or maybe finger prints in bright colours and then I can draw on some wires to make fairy lights once it's dry. I found this one on pinterest. wink

Ds is 3 and I hate crafty mess so I think I'm being quite ambitious! smile
