52 Create – Craftvent Calendar, Day 21

52 Create, my weekly creative output for 2011.  Continuing along with my “Craftvent” calendar for my 2 year old daughter.  Simply put, it’s an advent calendar filled with crafts, all home made, many will be joint projects so she gets some fun of making stuff as well.

Day 21 – The other day we watched “Finding Nemo”.  I didn’t think it was all that great a movie, but my daughter seemed to think it was awesome (she’s more of a traditional Disney lover, so seeing as this was on the other end of the spectrum from Snow White – and had no princesses – I was shocked).  Anyways, thought I’d make her a couple of fish, the little one is Nemo of course, the big one, the whale.

52 Create – Craftvent Calendar, Day 11

Day 11 – While a lot of these advent crafts have been Christmas related, that was never a requirement, so today I made my daughter some Origami stars.  They are quite small (bout 3cm tall) which always seems to be more fun for little kids.  They are also quite sturdy so will likely last through playtime a bit longer than some of the other crafts.

Day 7 – Today I made an origami swan.  Pretty simple craft that I made while she watched me intently.  With each fold she got more and more excited on what I was making.  I didn’t have any origami paper so I just used some plain paper we had lying around.

52 Create – Craftvent Calendar, Day 5

Day 5 – Today I made some origami boxes.  Each box is slightly smaller making them able to stack inside of each other.  On the backs I wrote the numbers 1-7 to help my daughter learn her numbers (she knows them, just not the order…).  Done in Christmas colours, I finally broke down and bought some paper as I was getting tired of using advertisements.  So far the boxes have been well received, being made of paper they won’t last long, but she’ll enjoy them while they last.
