We were going to have a craft day and make homemade ornaments!!
2 hours at Joanns and $50 later we had all of our supplies.
I thought I had better try one out before the big day, thank goodness I did! This was not a craft for 5, 4, 3 and 2 year olds. I really don't know what I was thinking. So Thursday night I stayed up until almost 1:00 in the morning gluing tissue paper to Styrofoam balls.
|Finished!! And now time for drying and sleepy time.|
It was kind of therapeutic, but the kids would have melted down like no other. Next time I really need to think about a craft that has to have multiple swap outs on Martha Stewart for small children. The kids had a lot of fun painting their boxes and creatures. So I think it was a success. Here is their finished masterpieces.
Lake had the Elephant and
Ian had the Lady Bug
I think this will be a fun family memory!
Are you making holiday ornaments this year?
If so I would love to see them!!
