Christmas Tree Craft


See?  I promised I would post a Christmas craft today- and I’m doing it!  Woo Hoo!!  I have several cute projects planned to do with Hailey this week, so be sure to check back!

First up- an easy and cute Christmas tree.

Here’s what you’ll need: a piece of blue construction paper, 3 green triangles- small, medium and large, a small brown rectangle, glue, glitter glue, sequence (and whatever else you want to use to decorate your tree).

Glue the triangles and the rectangle onto the blue paper to make a Christmas tree.

Glue the sequence on the tree.

Add some glitter glue (or just regular glitter if you don’t mind the mess).

The finished Christmas tree.

Today when we were making this Christmas tree I told Hailey I was so happy that she was making good choices and not eating the glue (Hailey’s glue eating had gotten so bad that I just stopped doing projects with her because she would only eat the glue and not do any of the art project.)  She replied, “But my IS eating the glue.”

Oh well.  At least she was honest about it.

Yes, I'm Still Here


So about 2 weeks ago I promised that I was going to start posting again. And then I just got so busy that it never happened. I am just about done with my Christmas shopping. And I don’t plan to start any baking until next week. So, this week should be pretty free. My plan is to do several Christmas related crafts with Hailey. I’ll post the crafts as we do them. I mean it this time!

I'm Baaaack


I haven’t been posting much at all here lately.  We stopped doing crafts for a little while because I couldn’t get Hailey to stop eating the paint and glue.  Then Hailey was sick with the croup.  And then we were out of town for Thanksgiving.  So, we haven’t been doing any crafts.  But, we are going to get back into our crafts tomorrow.  I am going to be scaling back on how much we do though.  I was planning so many crafts that we were doing several each day.  And while it is a lot of fun, it is also a lot of work to put everything together.  So, we won’t be doing quite as much, at least until Christmas is over.  Since I am usually a week behind in my posting, I’ll be sharing our crafts starting next week.

Before I go, I just have to share this with you.  My mom showed me this cute turkey that one of the students in her class brought in for a Thanksgiving treat.  I don’t think any explanation is necessary for how to make these.  So simple and incredibly cute!
