Mini Christmas Mosaics

We found the inspiration for today's activity here and I've been stashing away bottle top lids for a few weeks now. Sienna and I lay on the floor and sorted Christmas coloured beads out of our big bead bag. Then it was time to break out the big guns...hubby's drill!

After I had drilled holes in the lids, threaded them and filled them with tile grout. Then the girls went for it.

That is so AWESOME, Hay! God am I feeling like a lazy Mum--Nathan and I haven't done any Christmas crafts--not even the gingerbread house. You are really rockin' it this year!!

The Word Party

Loving words clutch crimson roses,
Rude words sniff and pick their noses,
Sly words come dressed as foxes,
Short words stand on cardboard boxes,
Common words tell jokes and gabble,
Complicated words play Scrabble,
Swear words stamp around and shout,
Hard words stare eachother out,
Foreign words look lost and shrug,
Careless words trip on the rug,
Long words slouch with stooping shoulders,
Code words carry secret folders,
Silly words flick rubber bands,
Hyphenated words hold hands,
Strong words show off, bending metal,
Sweet words call each other 'petal',
Small words yawn and suck their thumbs,
Till at last the morning comes,
Kind words give out farewell posies....
Snap! The dictionary closes.
