Though I’d planned a post for you this morning I’m helping with some download issues for my new book, DIY Organic Beauty Recipes. As my public service announcement for the day, iPad does not play well with PDF’s unless you download one of these free apps to help them get along. It’s easy peasy!
While I’m working on that, I thought you might like a peek into one of our holiday traditions. Sometimes we create masterpieces and sometimes we mostly slather glue on ourselves, but every year the kids and I make an ornament for the tree. This is from a couple years ago is my favorite set so far. ♥
Oh, Christmas tree! Oh, Christmas treeeeee!!!
How richly God has decked thee!
With yarn, balloons, and Elmer’s glue . . .
We’re redefining gooey!
See? Proof that I worked HARD!
Now how do we get those balloons out of there???
Oh Christmas tree! Oh Christmas tree!
How richly God (and Katie) have decked thee!
Kid-friendly craft alert! Spread some holiday cheer as you and your little ones create these elegant homespun ornaments. Simple supplies like water balloons, white glue, wax paper and yarn are all you need to get started.
A boxed set would be perfect for grandparents or a favorite teacher. Or keep them yourself . . . your kids will have fun and you’ll get the keepsake! Hope ya’ll are cherishing the moments, making paper chains and chugging down some real, authentic egg nog.
