I made a fun silhouette for the shelves in our living room.The idea came from Pinterest (check out my holiday decorations board) and I just love the simplicity. It's easy and fast; get your black paper and a stanley knife, draw the houses and cut them out. Searching the internet got me quite some Sint silhouettes to print, I chose this one here. Stick the houses on the wall with tape, place the Sint on top and you're done!
To keep track of the days I always make a little countdown calendar for the rascals (oh and I just realised we're one day behind already)
To add to the fun the reading corner in the boys room turned Sinterklaas only, I discovered we've quite a lot of books covering this theme.
I'm also working on a surprise school project, we're rebuilding the steamer and of course Sint and his Pieten will be on board. This means making a lot of little toilet paper rolls men. It's quite enjoyable actually, thinking up all the little details.
And of course, there's dress up, The rascals are ready with their Pieten outfits. The hats are bought this year, the pants are homemade using the aviator pants pattern.
Oh and look, there he is, the man himself! Well in this case, the man of my house, meet Mr. Rascal in his role as deputy Sint. (Sorry husband, I just couldn't resist :) )
So tell me, do you celebrate Sinterklaas and go all out on decorations?
