My little guy is obsessed with arts and crafts. OBSESSED. One of his favorite hobbies is scrolling through my Pinterest page, making mental notes of each and every craft he intends to make. They say an elephant never forgets, but the saying should really be a three-year-old never forgets.
I have to admit the other day, when he literally woke me up by requesting we make a Christmas craft, I wasn’t feeling very Pinterest-y.
“Good morning mama! You pretty! We make Christmas craft now. PWWEEEAASE!”
Um… Thanks for the compliment, kid, but can I at least have my coffee before we start talking crafts?
So after breakfast (and a much needed cup of coffee), I came up with this Christmas craft using odds and ends from our craft supply. It actually turned out pretty cute!
What we used:
- Green construction paper, cut into triangles
- Foam shapes
- Glue sticks
- Popsicle sticks
- Hot glue
It almost seems silly to list what we did, because it really was so simple. After cutting the paper into triangles, I glued two triangles together to create a tree. Jackson then decorated the tree with miscellaneous foam shapes we’ve collected from different projects. When he was done, I attached a popsicle stick and ribbon, using my hot glue gun. Voila! A simple ornament that makes a cute handmade gift.
This kept Jackson busy for almost an hour, too. It’s the simple things, people…
