Here's our first featured family. Dad's scratchin' that itch on his head. That's Grandma over there on the end with the pink ear muffs. And yes, those oversized pom poms on the hats are real. I hot glued them on at the very end.
Next up, with three adopted children from China, there wasn't much room left for the biological kids. So only the big sister still living at home made it onto the 8X10 canvas. Here's part of the family. And they're apparently all under arrest.
It's funny how into it they got. These snow people are all wearing buttons in their favorite colors.
Aren't they cute? I don't want to take them down tomorrow.
Here's the best part. The canvases came in a 3 pack originally priced at $5.99. But they were 50% off when I went in to get them and that made them a buck a kid! WOO-HOO!!! Everything else (with the exception of white glitter) I dug out of the supply closet at school.
And tomorrow we shall wrap them up in our finest handmade wrapping paper. (Think Bingo stampers on thin kraft paper.)
And because it's totally going to kill them to have their parents wait til Christmas to open them, perhaps you might even find a note like this attached to the top. . .
or maybe this. . .
it could even be partly upside down. . .
or totally the wrong merry. Or is it marry? No, wait. Mary????
