Here is an easy and cheap craft to do for Holiday Gifts…got this one from my son’s teacher a couple of years ago. They took plain, white tile and broke it up into medium size pieces
(gently in a bag with a hammer..it is cheap- and
sometimes stores will even give you ones that are already broken for free!)
Then they let the kids use their thumb print to “dot” the tile…added the details with a Sharpie…hot glued a ribbon loop to the back and a puff ball for the nose, googly eyes… and Voila!
Cute keepsake, right?
We made the snowglobe Bulletin Board found on Deanna Jump’s blog…love it. I changed the writing paper copy to describe with their senses what it would be like to be in a snowglobe.
A hint for all your snowman/Christmas art projects: Glitter SPRAY! Easy to use and dries to look great! I used it on the snowglobes…and my elves this year. You’ll love it!
Like the glitter all over my thumb-?? (no extra charge for that!!) lol
and just one more little observation…have you seen the new happy meal fries?? Using the crayon for scale, here is a picture. Now I know we have to be more healthy, especially with our kids. BUT…this resembles “toy size fries”..and if they are this small…HOW CAN I SNEAK A FEW OF THEM OUT BEFORE I GET HOME??? I mean, the kids will know!! I eat three and that’s half the pack!!! lol
I mean, I guess I could live without stealing their fries. (maybe)
