The Elves Are Busy

A few weeks ago my little elves got very busy

Chief Elf, also known as WB, set up his little workshop.

These are just glimpses of the toys and presents that are being made.
Sorry, we can't look too close because then we might give away some surprises.

Let's just say this years Christmas is home-grown, like my kids. We've named our little home-grown business:
Look for our upcoming products in a store near you. Wait sorry, we're not quite there yet but maybe soon.

One more hint as to the loose theme we have attached to most of our gifts this year, because I'm all about themes and tying our gift giving into some sort of lesson. We are studying Texas this year. Oh, that was one hint, but I'll give you one more:

I'll keep you up to date on our progress and maybe unveil some of our projects over at my Crafty Corner in the next few weeks:)

Easy Christmas Gift for Preschooler

Little Ones big sister's are busy creating Christmas gifts for their loved ones. We came up with a fun and easy idea for their 2 1/2 year old sister. After looking at some of the systems that "help" read stories to children, like Leapfrog and the such we decided we could come up with our own little system. Borrowing from the reading centers we used to have in school we are using this:
And these:

Then the 7 year old and 9 year old are going to record each story to a cassette, put it in a baggie they have decorated and give the whole caboodle to Little One. So now when her sisters go off to read she can plop down in her little nook and read along with her sisters!

Do you have any easy preschool gifts to share?
