Handmade Christmas Cards

We downloaded these cute Noel cards from Mer Mag blog then decorated with water colour thumb-prints! I love working with water colour paints over kids paint!

Anya has been writing her own name lately without assistance but had me gobsmacked yesterday when she asked how to spell Papa and promptly wrote it herself?!?!  What the???....  All that reading has paid off.  So she was as pleased with herself to sit down and write all her friends' and teachers' names on their cards.  I was grinning as much as she was... it isn't something we have pushed her to do, she just really enjoys reading and has been able to recognise the alphabet for a while now.  Not bad for someone who has just turned four!
