Christmas Craft

I have to boast. There are 2 projects that I completed for my kids this year that I am especially proud of and I have to share them. Both my boys are into Star Wars/ Indiana Jones Legos and I wanted to make them something that would be special...and fun.

For F...I made this Indiana Jones I Spy Bag. I love it! I loved it sooo much that I made 2 more for my nephews. I really had a lot of fun making these bags and I really like that I had a theme. That made it both harder and easier to put it together. Thanks to all those cool moms who made these before me and shared their ideas and how-tos on the internet.

For A...I am especially proud. He can't really play with his but this is what I came up with. Star Wars Lego Art for his bedroom. I used my Silhouette for the vinyl lettering 'May the Force be with you' and the lego people are cut out from cardstock. I had so much fun making the headdress for Queen Amidala. I am so happy with how it turned out. And I already know that A will love it...because he found it already. I was hiding it in the corner of our bedroom between the wall and our dresser. It was covered up with the curtain. I don't know how he found it but F said A showed it to him one day. That little stinker. Oh well. He doesn't know it's for him...but really who else could it be for? I'm still proud of it. And am glad A thought it was cool.

Madelyn love sher little spy bags. One year I made 25 - it was like I hate myself, but I could not believe how much fun they have with them. Love the idea of the themes - you are so cute.

Very nice!

We have an I spy Thanksgiving jar that we made at one of those Stake RS activities a few years back in CA. Never seen a bag before!

Seriously those are too cool. My boys would be LOVING them. I can't believe those clever little boys you have...finding gifts. So sneaky! Which of course only makes them that much cuter. Clever to make an eye spy bag with a theme. So cute Staci!
