A handmade Christmas gift {work in progress}

I have a whole list of things I am making my little girls for Christmas! There are so many new ideas that pop into my head every day. It's hard to keep up with them. My girls are 6, 4 and 4. They have great imaginations and love anything pretend play. I want to give them a wonderful Christmas but instill the real reason for Christmas. So, instead of buying over priced cheaply made toys, I'm making them! First on the list is a Puppet Theater/Bakery Sweet Shoppe. We used things we already had. A shelf I built and never finished last year, a wooden box window valance my Husband made when our oldest was just a baby,  a 2x4 cut into two pieces and a chalk board we already had. This is a work in progress but it will be so cute when it's finished! We still have to add a dowel rod and I have to make a curtain. Of course it will need to be sanded and painted. Here is a work in progress photo. When my kids go to sleep tonight I will sneak it in the house and paint it. More photos to come so stay tuned! Are you making something special for your little ones for Christmas?
