The holidays are a fantastic time to get crafty! Each year the kids make at least one ornament to add to the tree and a "duplicate" (or more) to gift. This year so far, we've made foam snowmen, cupcakes, and puzzled reindeer (love these!!):
*Those are my girlfriends BreeAnne and Kristen. They shared a Saturday with us and got their craft on! Fun to have not-yet-mommy friends spend a whole day with me and my kids!
Collin was experiementing with ornament hangers, hence the candy cane! GREAT idea, but it's unwrapped and sticky! ; )
Puzzled Reindeer: Take old, mis-matched puzzles pieces. Glue together to form your head and antlers. Spray the trio with paint (we used metallic gold). Add a nose and two eyes. Hello, Rudolph!!
I haven't taken a pic yet, but these look FANTASTIC on the tree!!
