Quick/fun gift idea, plus kaleidoscope snowflake printables

Homemade gifts idea:

Hi there. Yes we are three days away from Christmas and this weekend my kiddos are finishing up their homemade gifts for their siblings. We don't feel the pressure of having to be done weeks in advance for Christmas, we are just enjoying our weekend and leisuring finishing up...

My two girls are making their 4 year old brother a homemade coloring book using all the differnt online pages and this fun link.., using our own pictures. :)

They are also trying to find dot to dot pages for a fun activity book of sorts.

 After they find and print all the pages they will bind it all together with
scrap book paper on both sides and that will be that.

In the past Autumn for made for one of her friends, a homemade Knock Knock joke book for a christmas gift. We all enjoyed helping her pick the jokes out and it was fun seeing what she thought was funny. ;)

Kaleidoscope snowflakes
We found this super fun coloring page while we were searching today. The girls love it and it kind of reminds us of a snowflake, this time of year anyway. Maybe in Spring it will be a flower and then in fall a bunch of fallen leaves. ;) I thought I would share the fun for all those colring lovers out there. :) 

This is just one of 4 kaleidoscope coloring pages. 

There was also some fun Christmas colouring pages for different ages on this link All ages coloring pages. My 4, 6 and 9 year old all found something they enjoyed coloring.

What I am thinking about ~ For the past 4 years we have been a homemade christmas gift family... We share Christmas with two other American families. They each have kids and so we started having the kids make gifts for each other. They have been simple and some very clever and creative through the years. This year however we will not be celebrating with one of our sweet families as they have returned to the States. We miss them dearly and I am thinking of them tonight especially.

 I hope the little homemade gift we shared gave you some last minute ideas that help you invest at home and spend less money and more time with your little ones. :) 

Merry Christmas dear ones. 
Celebrating hope, freedom and life in my little west corner this December 22nd. 

Off I go to wrap up some gifts as this post has taken me all day and now night time is upon me.
(oh the sweet few hours of stillness!)
