Christmas Crafts - Robins

Today the children spent some time drawing and painting in watercolours onto the front of blank Christmas cards. We got photos up on the iPad of robins, one of our favourite birds. They tried their best to copy exactly what they saw.

The finished cards...

Using this pattern we sewed some...

...felt robin decorations

and Abigail sewed a robin for a Christmas gift for her Great Granny, framed in an embroidery hoop.


  1. This is really cute. Great activity for fine motor skills!

  2. We love robins, too. I'm sure Great Granny will be more than pleased with her gift. It's beautiful.

  3. Love, love, love this - and it would make such a super cute gift. We may have to make a few other things too! Thanks for sharing!
