My son had to take a few Christmas decorations to school and this year we decided we were going to make them. We love crafting together and its a pleasure to see the twinkle in eyes as he holds up his finished piece.
Crafting is good for your kids. What better way to get them off the idiot box and other attention devouring gadgets. Yes, it involves mess and clean up but its worth it.
We found some great ideas online.
1. Popsicle Stick Star from Ankle Biter Art
Kids can help paint the Popsicle sticks and put glue drops.
2. Popsicle Stick Snowman from momontimeout
This we made months ago so all we are going to do now, is fix a ribbon hoop and its good to go. Again, painting, sticking.
3. The adorable Ribbon Christmas Tree ornament. This is so cute! Here he helped me thread the beads.
Yes! Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Cannot wait to get the tree up and make some more stuff!
