This week my youngest needed a family tree for school and while I thought we had until Wednesday, when I got home from a meeting on Monday night at 7:40pm both girls were up and waiting for me because apparently it was needed for Tuesday. Good grief.
Luckily I had stayed up on Sunday night and had organised the photos – we’ve got a big family and Facebook profile pics helped a LOT!
I had planned to get some cardboard to make it with and had totally forgotten. Luckily I found this foamcore sheet down the side of a desk and I cut up some brown paper to make this tree shape while the girls where cutting out the leaves and the photos. We stuck everything down with a hot glue gun.
The leaves were made of cardboard – I had two packs of A5 coloured card from Officeworks that were destined for other projects but came in handy for this one. I put dabs of glue on the tree and my youngest stuck on her leaves, flowers and cherries (drawn onto leaves – a bit hard to see).
Now please pour me a wine. Thanks.
