A frivolous and fun post today and a Christmas activity for busy mums (or dads and grandparents) to do with their wee ones ~ something easy to make as a gift for a teacher or their classmates, no cooking or fiddly preparation, just assembling and packing ~ it’s Snowman Soup on a Mug!
This gift idea and photos was originally submitted by me and published in Country Kirchen magazine in 2009, but as I am progressing through my Advent Calendar I thought it would be a nice idea to share with you all on day eight, the snowman window day! The Snowman animated film by Raymond Briggs is my favourite modern Christmas film……..why……..well, it was the first film I watched after taking my newborn baby daughter home from hospital; she was born three weeks early on the 13th of December ~ and the song “walking in the air” still makes me feel all nostalgic and a little weepy, given that she is now a young woman in her early twenties.
This is not a long post today ~ I am really busy this week and all of a sudden a flurry of invitations to Christmas parties and festive gatherings have landed on my doormat, but I did want to share this with you, if only as a bit of light-hearted fun…..see you later.
