My project today is another simple one!
See? Oh, seriously- ignore my cobwebs. (As you can see, we're still decorated for Halloween! Sure... that's what we'll call it!)
1" hole punch
different colored paper (I used The Paper Stuido's "Faith" pack.)
Another project to do with the kiddos!
Measure out a length of twine and arrange 1/2 your circles on it. Glue stick the rounds and add a topper. basically, you're stringing the paper along the twine and making a 1" paper circle sandwich out of it.
These actually turned out a lot cuter than I expected them to! I plan on making a huge one with the kids later so we can string it on the tree, and the mantle!
So, today my question is what is your favorite thing to do with small peoples during the holidays? We do several things, because I'm convinced the memories are much better than the "things" they'll get. I mean, seriously- do you remember everything you got for your 9th Christmas? No? me neither. But, anyway, we have a gingerbread house competition (I make gingerbread houses and we decorate them. I'll be easier to buy them, but with 6 kids that crap can get expensive!), and we go "Light Seeing" with some homemade hot chocolate. We decorate cookies (also take with us when we go look at lights) and I do a Christmas Eve box- with new pajamas in it- I sew their pants and give them a new t-shirt in it, they get a pack of hot chocolate and we make popcorn while we watch the Nativity Story.
Those are our kid-traditions. :)
