Reindeer printable

Advertisements

Today I am going to share a reindeer printable! I am so happy I have started to draw again. I use to love drawings and stopped while studying my degree, then a few years ago my sister talked to me about these pencils, an easy way to start some watercolor practice.

I made some regular drawings for the girls crafts but never found a moment to try watercolors. And last month I finally bought the right paper and tried the pencils.

It’s actually not that hard,even if I need to improve my skills,and it’s really satisfying!

After a few tries,that I will be slowly sharing, I tried to recreate a watercolor reindeer, Rudolph style And gave it to my girls to play some #facethefoliage with red maple leaves.

That’s why I am sharing here the reindeer printable, so you can print it at home and maybe your kids will also love to glue some leaves to create the antlers!

Watercolor sketch

That’s a similar activity than the one I shared a few months ago, that you can find here .

You just need to download the template (scroll down),print it and use some leaves to add the antlers. Some kids just like to draw the antlers by themselves. And you can even try watercolor pencils, coloring and then adding some water with a brush,they usually love it!

And remember that you can follow my Instagram for more inspo @scraps.and.coffee.grounds

I will be practicing more and soon I’ll use them as homeschooling cards, turning them into templates and more printables, I hope you like them!xx

Remember last year’s photo that we made for Halloween? We recreated these retro family portraits,you know the ones a bit creepy, where everyone is so serious and it’s actually a little scary

This hey we tried to take a similar one, a vintage circus with different characters,the costumes are simple and the edit with PicsArt to add some details.

The thing is that I want to share easy costume ideas,that you can make with clothes from your closet,or just some makeup and that’s even possible for a family session!

The strongest man,the seer,and two little harlequins and that’s it! No need to buy new stuff or clutter your house, a slow Halloween is also possible! And so much fun!

Kawasaki disease

Aside

Kawasaki disease: after three hospitals, lots of perfusions,one lumbar ponction and different treatments we finally know the reason why our oldest girl was struggling with high fever and low blood pressure the last days. Her condition was getting worse so the doctors finally thought about Kawasaki disease (at first they thought it was meningitis,that’s why the lumbar ponction), started the right treatment (intravenous inmunoglobulin and aspirin)
Her condition improved so we could came back home yesterday. She’s slowly recovering from everything and we’ll have different appointments to check her heart again,but I wanted to share these templates (swipe for English/french and Spanish) to share in case that helps someone else. I heard about Kawasaki disease but had no idea how impressive symptoms might be and about this coronary risk,so I guess that raising awareness is never a bad idea


That painting was on one of the rooms we had,when we arrived at the emergency room of Toulouse (by helicopter,no parents allowed ) Thanks to all those who sent DMS to check and thought about us,if you know me a bit you probably know that I don’t usually need insta breaks,here’s my happy place and I really enjoy this space and I will probably start sharing again my usual content because that’s how I reset and think about happy things
Some  info:
“Kawasaki disease (KD), also known as Kawasaki syndrome, is a severe illness characterized by inflammation of blood vessels throughout the body that primarily affects young children and infants. Kawasaki disease is the leading cause of acquired heart disease in children. Although about 80 percent of patients are under five years of age, older children and teenagers can also get KD, but this is uncommon.  KD is not contagious.

It is estimated that more than 4,200 children are diagnosed with Kawasaki Disease in the U.S. each year. The cause of KD is unknown, although an agent, like a virus,is suspected.There is no specific test for KD; doctors make a clinical diagnosis based on a collection of symptoms and physical findings” http://www.kdfoundation.org
