Cardmaking with Apollo..(photo heavy post)

Hello Everyone! Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend. I actually had a lot of fun and one thing I wanted to share with you is the joy I had working with Apollo on his first Halloween card.  He loves my Silhouette and although I have only had it a few months, he has picked up quite a bit.  I found this great Halloween card file on the free files at the Silhouette website and picked out papers for two cards – one for him and one for me.

Working with the tiny eyes for the ghost was a great challenge for him.

I cleared off my little Project Life table and set it up next to my desk near the Silhouette and layed out his supplies.  He really enjoyed putting all the pieces together.

Gluing small pieces of paper were some good fine motor skills practice.

It was so much fun watching him assemble the pieces. Although I did end up helping him with the glue for the eyes and mouth.

I like that he wasn’t discouraged at all and kept working to complete the card.

This was a fun first project from the Silhouette for him.

I love the focus this 6 year old had to complete his card.

The tricky part was getting the word ‘Boo’ down leaving enough room for the exclamation point.

Assembling it all together and pressing to make sure the glue takes.

I think it is safe to say he loved his card.

Look my first Halloween card!

I am more than thrilled that he has an interest in my crafts and that we can experience some together.

Have a blessed day!

  1. 😀 Brings a smile to my face – I hope my son will like to craft with me. He does allready, but it’s more turning the handle of the machine (Cuttlebug), and I put the (scrap) pieces of paper between the folders he chooses or dies he chooses and ofcourse I assemble the stack. He’s only 2 1/2, but I hope he keeps enjoying doing this with me. Oh, and he also loves playing with my distress inks – although I don’t let him use the inkpads by himself, he can choose colors and stamps, or we put it on the acryllic block, spray some water on it and stamp with that or paint with that. My daughter turned 1 yesterday, and I hope she is also going to like crafting!

    Oh and Apollo: Good job! It’s a very fun Halloween card, and beautifully made!
