Skylanders Easter Egg

Easter weekend may well be over but we are still on our school holidays, to celebrate Easter Skylanders have sent us an Easter Egg with a difference.

Skylanders have chosen us join in on the mission to protect and guard Skylands treasured Easter Eggs from the evil Kaos who is trying to hunt them all down as part of a wicked plan that he has.

We have been sent a giant orange egg to disguise any way which we please in order to make it more difficult for Kaos to find.

Jak got his creative cap on and using the acrylic paints that was sent in the pack that we received he painted a new design on the egg. As Skylanders Giants is all about collecting jewels, diamonds and treasure Jak decided to add some glitter and sparkles to his design.

The egg splits into two which makes it easier to decorate each half as it can sit flat on a table or work surface.

What do you think of his Egg decorating?

On one side of the egg Jak painted his own character that he designed called The Deathitor and the other side has a painting of Eye Brawl with a googly eye stuck on as his big eye.

A letter to Santa Claus #craft

You better watch out
You better not cry
Better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
He’s making a list
And checking it twice;
Gonna find out Who’s naughty and nice
Santa Claus is coming to town
He sees you when you’re sleeping
He knows when you’re awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake!
O! You better watch out!
You better not cry
Better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town

With only 31 sleeps till Christmas and for Santa to be shimering his way down our soot filled chimney, the boys have been thinking of their letter to Santa, of coarse they don’t need any persuasion in do this as they enjoy looking through the Argos and Smyths catalogues for some ideas on what they are hoping Santa will bring them this year.

I know they are hoping for an Xbox 360 and some new books plus the odd Lego and moshi monster product but its always fun to write a letter to the man that wears the red suit.

This year I have made special little felt envelopes for them to place their letter into, we will place them on the Christmas tree sprinkle them with special christmas magic dust so that Santa will get them in time for the 24th December and hopefully the boys have been good enough and have made it to the nice list so when they wake up on Christmas Day and they make their way down the stairs to see if their wishes have come true.

You will need :
Red Felt
Red Cotton
Pen To With
Velcro or Press Stud
Craft pieces to make a Stamp

Cut out a tall house shape on the felt.
Fold it in half but leave the triangle shape on top (finding it hard to explain, see pics below)
Stitch down the sides
Fold over the triangle and attach a press stud or Velcro to keep the flap o the envelope down
Write on the front of the envelope
Make a stamp, we used a small piece of foam and stuck on a star

You could attach some string to them and hang them as decorations from the tree.

The boys not only have an envelope that they can use year after year but also somewhere special that their letter to Santa will be stored.

Thank you for reading
