Cherished Moments Monday - Christmas Spirit

"Get the magic of the season started by making something special." ~Mama HenWe started getting the Christmas spirit going by making a holiday wreath and a gingerbread house. This wreath is an easy and fun project to do. I made a round cut out and Little Chick smooshed up green tissue paper and stuck it on to the cut out. We then added a red felt bow and some beads. Very cute and so easy. We went to a local Christmas fair that all the proceeds were going to the Make a Wish Foundation and to the children at our local hospital. We supported them and bought a gingerbread kit. Little Chick had a lot of fun making her house and eating the decorations as she went along. We have been reading the Gingerbread Baby every day, so she thought this was a lot of fun! We are super excited that Christmas is on its way!
Have a great week!

  13. How sweet. I always do a advant wreath (or what ever it is called in english) on the first advant sunday, the next one we make a ginger bread house on the 3rd one we put up our tree. I should put up the pics of the kids making it.

  18. This is such a fun season, especially with little ones. I can't wait to make our ornaments...it's a tradition. We make angels with poster board, clothes pins, and pipe cleaners and they always turn out so cute!
