We have been up to our heads in parent gifts! We made 4 different crafts for our sweet parents this year. First up, we made these adorable Christmas trees that have been all over Pinterest. We used Christmas scrapbook paper and cut it into different size strips. It's a great activity for incorporating largest to smallest.
We made these super cute thumbprint ornaments.
Of course, I forgot to take a picture of the finished product. But here is the original source.
These were my favorite gifts we made. We picked up these pots at Ikea on our latest trip. They wrote with a sharpie "There's Snow Place Like Home." We used cotton balls to dab on white acrylic paint for the snow on the bottom. The littles then made the snowmen with 3 fingers painted in white acrylic paint. Once they dried, They used colored sharpies to draw the rest. Do not spray when finished if you use sharpies like we did. The colors will smear. You probably could spray with a clear spray paint to seal it if you used acrylic paint on the scarves and noses.
Finally, we made Christmas cards for the parents. Rayann picked up these cute photo props at Hobby Lobby. I brought my DSLR and we had a little photo shoot! We were originally going to frame these, but I just couldn't find anything cute for frames. So I picked up this pack of 50 cards at Hobby Lobby for $9.99. But they were half off, so I just paid $5. I also picked up some Washi tape there, too, to match the props.
I attached the photos to the cards with rubber cement and then put the Washi tape in each corner. The kids wrote a message inside for their parents.
Once we got it all finished, we put the ornaments in the pot with some tissue paper. Then we wrapped them in cellophane and put a ribbon on it. I forgot to take a picture of that, too! By the time our Christmas Grinch party was over, my brain was fried! We had grinch punch and bought the kids breakfast. I didn't take pics of that either... Oh well. I'll leave you with a picture of the three of us leaving Ikea Atlanta last Saturday. We took a girl's trip down there and loaded up! I just love spending time with these girls!
Have a Merry Christmas, everyone!
