Christmas Crafts

December really does seem to be a month full of crafting! Here are just two of the many projects the kids worked on this month.

Decorating their own foam gingerbread houses

Tiny tree!
This was a really cool project. The tree it self is a wooden dowel with silver pipe cleaners wrapped around it. The tiny ornaments are Shrinky Dinks! In case you don't know what that is. There are outlines of pictures on plastic. You color in the pictures then place them in the oven. They curl up, flatten out, and are now tiny hard plastic ornaments. So much fun!

Guitar, not a recital

Sweet Daughter started a new instrument this year and wasn't ready to perform in a concert. Being our child who loves performing, she wanted to put on her own concert at home.
