Countdown to Christmas - Crafts!

We made some Christmas crafts I found from Our Homeschool Fun. (This may be private, but if not check it out because it's full of good ideas.)

We've been reading a lot of snowmen books, so we made some snowmen from Popsicle sticks. We used felt for the scarf and buttons. Reese is very particular about doing things just so. Gus was just excited to use glue.
We also made a snowman family by painting the boys' hands with white paint and then gripping a clear ornament. Gus just could not stop squishing it so his was a blur of white paint. The photo is Reese's hand. Down on the palm I wrote Reese's name and 2011. I filled the inside with sparkly confetti. I could not get a photo to turn out well, but trust me it looks like snow.
We also did tree footprints. They used sparkly stickers to be the ornaments. They both really love these. I realized that we really need to make more handprint and footprint crafts. They are just so sweet! I love their little feet!

Thank you, Heather!!

Your crafts turned out great!! I like the sparkly stickers on the footprint tree alot. I love glitter and sparkle on anything.

Yes, I think a zillion hand/footprint crafts still wouldn't be too much. I know they'll be treasures in just a short time because I think they grow overnight :(.
