Snowed In

Kids Hand Print Christmas Wreath  |  My Name Is Snickerdoodle{Edited:  I finally put together a short tutorial on how to make this wreath that you can check out HERE!}
Yesterday was the best day of the season so far! It S N O W E D I N T E X A S!!! None of it really stuck to the grown and started raining right after, but it still counts. It is supposed to snow tomorrow as well, but this one is going to be big! At least half an inch of snow! Ian's work already has a call list in working order just in case they have to shut down work because of the 'mounds' of fluff that will fall. It's hilarious how crazy Texans get in snow. Everything shuts down and roads get closed. Good thing because none of them can drive in it.
While Ian had to unfortunately go to work, Liam and I celebrated the weather by staying inside. We watched fun Christmas specials, sang Christmas songs, played games, made cookies and created this adorable wreath! I traced Liam's hand on chipboard then tediously cut out 'pine boughs' from green card stock. Liam helped me glue everything together and we finished it off with a cute ribbon. I plan on doing more fun crafts with him during this month. Do you all have any ideas you would like to share?

  3. The wreath is super cute!

    I have an almost 3 year old and we're doing a Christmas Tree Advent Calendar. We made it out of cardstock and are putting on a new "ornament" every day. :)

  14. Trying to find a craft for 5th graders and only have about 30 minutes. Do you think this is too young of a craft for them? I think it is a wonderful craft, but need a second opinion. ;) Thanks!
