Christmas card making

This morning we had some fun with paint, making Christmas cards ready for when needed for Arthur's nursery friends.  We used a few different thumb, hand and foot printing techniques to try and create different Christmassy pictures.  I obviously guided Arthur a lot in order to create them, but then allowed his to have free play with the paint after, although he did get a bit over excited a couple of times and create some minor issues with a couple. such as an upside down reindeer and a big browny green blob that I haven't figured out how to salvage yet! (we only had a limited number of cards!!)

After lunch we then went on a lovely chilly walk to the park to play the swings, and take a walk through the woods and along the river.  Poor Arthur fell over in a big puddle, but luckily he was well wrapped up in waterproofs so didn't complain.
