The sweetest smelling Garbage Truck



At Christmas my hubby and I received some Lindt chocolate...mmm, don't you just love Lindt? I thought the papers were too pretty to throw away and they smell so good too.


If you have a little guy in your house, I'm willing to bet he loves the garbage truck. Ours comes on a Tuesday and I always say a small prayer that it will arrive before Little One has to go off to school. So when I suggested that we make a garbage truck, he was really keen. 



I cut out the truck beforehand and with the craft glue in hand and a little help on my part, Little One glued the pieces down to make the truck. Then the really fun part began - smelling and rolling the chocolate papers into balls and sticking them into the truck. All in all he enjoyed the activity and our sweet smelling garbage truck has claimed a spot on the fridge. :)

Till next time.

Dear Georgia,
thank you for your visit and your nice comments. I´m happy you like some of the ideas :).

My boys painted the dishes with porcelain pens - that´s all :).

By the way: We love Lindt, too ... and the garbage truck is very cute.

Hugs from Germany,
Nadine
