It's finally here! This has been like waiting for that magical morning and dashing down the stairs to see what's under the Christmas Tree. First I want to thank SARAH for pulling this all together - a lot of work that gal does. And she has gathered some beautiful things to gift over the 12 days - you just have to visit each of the blogs, leave a comment for them and have some fun!!
I share today with:
When Sarah asked for some possible projects for children, I had to raise my hand. My three grandkids love crafting and I was gathering supplies to have a NaNa project to do with them next visit.
Supplies for this project are real simple and easy to gather. Lots of stickers, glue (I found some fun glitter glue), ribbons, pipe cleaners, and any little fun crafty item that makes you happy. AND a box of CD's. I found all of these items in various Dollar Stores, so a very inexpensive craft project.
We are making Ornaments with the CD's and supplies. I worked with a 3 yr. old, 6 yr. old , and 10 yr. old - so this shows you can work this project with different ages (recommend more serious decor for older kids). My granddaughter LOVES stickers and anything sparkly. It didn't take her long to figure this whole thing out.
I did have to help out with some of the 'harder' stickers,
but the delight was discovering we could design on both sides!
We were watching a movie, too - sometimes that needed more watching than crafting. And my daughter is in the middle of a kitchen/diningroom re-hab, but our temporary set up worked just fine. While she spackled and painted we glued, glittered, and stickered.
Ah, back to work. This guy was pretty good at cutting some of the items to make some design changes.
The glitter glue was VERY popular and we had to use every tube, even though there were two of each color - yup, each opened and used.
Just some of the finished ornaments - their second side drying. Then their ribbon hangers can be added. You can use a dremel to drill holes to a little more advance crafting with the older crowd. Even craft paint can be used - I kept it simple with the smaller ones. Just gather supplies and some kids and you will be surprised what they will create on their own.
Thank you for visiting and please be sure to visit each day.
