OMG you guys! Terry has been home taking a little vacation during this Christmas break and well.... I totally forgot it was Tuesday. And I totally forgot that this particular Tuesday marks the end of a fantastic year of Iron Craft.
So without further delay .... this last challenge was:
"We’ve made it, it’s the last Iron Craft challenge of the year! Of course, this challenge hits smack dab in the middle of the holidays, so let’s embrace that. This week we want you to make something for the theme of celebration. Create something that adds to a celebration. That can be a decoration, food, a cocktail or whatever else says celebration to you. We are thinking, Christmas, Hanukkah, Winter Solstice, Kawanzaa, and New Year’s, but you can use any celebration as your inspiration." (Courtesy of Just Crafty Enough)
The kids and I decided that we would celebrate the 12 Days of Pokemon.
Yeah... you read that correctly.
When I finally remembered that today was Iron Craft reveal day, I ran upstairs to take photos of our lovely celebration posters - so please forgive the terrible pictures. It's dark outside already! ACK!
Anyhoo - Terry sent me an email linking to the Pokemon Twitter page in mid-December. The Twitter account was releasing their version of the 12 Days of Christmas - The 12 Days of Pokemon. Each day they would release another picture.
We thought it would be cool to show Logan because he is obsessed with Pokemon. He loved them! So I thought up a craft to commemorate each day.
I printed out the pictures twice (because each kid needed to work on their own poster), got some poster board from the Dollarstore and let the kids take over.
Logan collects Pokemon cards and has a lot of repeats, so he thought it would be nice to use the repeated cards to decorate the poster as well.
I think they turned out fun and festive!
Wanna hear (or rather ... read) the 12 Days of Pokemon?
