Not that I’m counting. Not that I’m already getting excited about what fun things me and my little amphibians will get up to next year. More like this was my clever way of saying, hey, look what we did last month that are completely irrelevant for another 346 days.
This idea, instructions, template and everything came from Lessons Learnt and we pretty much didn’t deviate from it at all. This was the first time I worked with legit watercolors with the boys. It took them a bit of time to discover that those little round color disks actually made paint when water was added to them, but once they did, they had a ball.
The other Christmas trees we made were all Turtle’s idea.
I knew I wanted to make a popsicle stick ornament but was having troubles coming up with something. For some reason I was stuck on the idea of making it a star, but also knew that I wanted it to have pictures and couldn’t figure out how to combine the two. Then when I got the sticks out and the green and red paint Turtle asked if we were making trees. A light bulb went off. Of course, we were making trees, what else could we be making?
To make it look even more like a tree and not just a green and red triangle, I got little star ornaments for the top and green beaded garland for the “decorations.”
And for more ornament fun, we made salt dough fingerprint Santas!
And then because we had the dough and the hands (and feet) and everything already prepared, I made a Froggy Angel:
And we ended the week with a Gingerbread Man cookie decorating party with Monkey and Koala Bear!
