25 Days of Christmas Activities- Week 3

Christmas is almost here!  There has been lots of excitement in our home with the anticipated birthday of Jesus.  Here are our pictures from this week.

Day 1- What's a Christmas tree without a little homemade garland of some sort?  Addi spent about 20 minutes threading fruit loops onto a sting and then the first one broke and they all fell off.  Our tress still has no homemade garland, but Addi was excited she got to eat a fun snack.

Day 2- Cotton Ball Candy Cane.  Today we went with an easy project for a busy day.  Works for me.

Day 3- If I had to take a guess this might have been Addilyn's favorite Christmas activity so far.  She kept "sneaking" some of the mini marshmallows and asking me to refill her bowl so she could finish making her snowman.

Day 4- These are our handprint Christmas trees that we made into magnets and put on the fridge.

Day 5-  Addi has gotten so much better at sorting shapes according to size.  She completed this activity in about a New York minute.  

Day 6- Today we painted paper bag gingerbread men using q-tips.  Addilyn had such a great time.  We hung them up on the wall but Josiah really likes them and has pulled them down at least 20 times already.

Day 7- Homemade cornstarch ornaments.  We had made ornaments with friends the first week in December, but we needed to make a few more for gifts for the grandparents.  Josiah's handprint did not turn out like we wanted and you can barely tell that Addi's thumbprints are actually thumbprints, but it's the thought that counts, right?  Merry Christmas.

Great ideas. I hadn't seen the Christmas tree hand print yet. We did ghosts for Halloween and turkeys. My daughter will enjoy doing the same for Christmas.
