Advent, day 4

This advent activity was entirely unplanned, but it turned out really well! Jonathan made Christmas ornaments out of Perler fusion beads. This is a new art medium for him and he's loving it.

Surprisingly, so is Thomas! I wasn't expecting him to be interested or capable, because it requires such careful fine motor movement. But my very focused little boy sat himself down and spent nearly an hour working on this for me.

Isn't it cute? I love all the different colors, I love that it is a turtle, and I love all that effort that went into making it for me.
