We are finished with our ornament gifts and I thought I would share a picture of our final work. We didn’t have sequins so I just hole punched different colored paper and that seemed to work just fine! My daughter was a trooper and helped me glue the ornaments on about half the trees (why did I think we needed to make 6????) I also glued yarn on the back so they can be hung on the tree.
We played a Santa dice game today that I read about here. Basically, you roll the dice and put that number of small candies (like M&Ms) on a cute Santa printout (check here if you want to download it!) It didn’t go as planned- my daughter just wanted to eat the treats. It is a really cute game and I think my Boo is just not quite ready for an activity like this. I did find a cute little Santa Claus & reindeer that I just COULDN’T stop myself from buying- and my daughter had fun w/ the Santa visiting her little people (and snacking on one to many M&Ms from aforementioned dice game).
Gotta run- hear my baby girl crying! Happy Holidays!!!
Beautiful ornaments! Your idea is so simple, but soooo nice. Thanks!
oh bummer! I’m sorry that game didn’t work out!
wow! you have some really amazing stuff going on here! 🙂 I’m totally out of the routine and need to get back in!
Very pretty. The games that involve candies would definitely be a non-starter here – we use wooden game pieces for playing.
your ornaments came out great! I can’t believe she helped you put those tiny little dots on…she is one amazing lil girl!
I love the trees. I think that D would like that project. We are going to do the Santa dice game also. I am afraid that I will be the one eating all of the M&M’s though. 🙂
Those trees are adorable!
The tree ornaments are so cute and look like a lot of fun. I’ll have to try those with my little ones. Thanks for sharing.
