As some of you may know from my last post, I’m a sucker for Christmas crafts with the kids, *tries to keep a straight face.* Each year so far we have done some hand and footprints onto card, which we’ve then made into Christmas cards for the grandparents and family.
Inside I’ve written a little rhyme from my two tots and I just thought I’d share the rhyme I wrote last year. If any of you were thinking of doing something similar, and were looking for a rhyme to fit then please feel free to pinch it if you like it, and adapt it to suit you and yours.
We wanted to make something special
To say “Happy Christmas” to you.
So our mummy did cut up some cardboard,
And paint us in glittery glue.
It might not be very expensive,
But it really is one of a kind.
We don’t have much else we can give you,
But our hands and our feet and our time.
As we eagerly wait now for Santa
We can’t wait for Christmas to come.
We love all the new decorations
And building a snowman looks fun!
But Christmases come and go quickly
And in no time we’ll be big and tall.
So we sent a keepsake to remind you
of this time when we both were so small.
If you just have one tot you can of course swap all the “us” and “we” to “me” and “I”, and then just swap the last line for “of this time when I still was so small.”
“Mummy” can also be swapped for Daddy / Grandma etc etc…
Hope it comes in handy for someone out there. It went down well on our cards last year. I’m just crossing my fingers that I can match it this year!?
Thanks for reading as always and Merry December to you all.
