Christmas List Keepsake Ornament Do It Yourself - Memories that will last a lifetime!

Christmas List Keepsake Ornament
Do It Yourself - Memories that will last a lifetime!
Items Needed: 
Ornaments Clear 1 for each child
Glue
Glitter
Paper
*note I couldnt find just clear ornaments so the ones I purchased had a picture of a bird inside, so pulled the bird out and had a clear ornament.

STEP 1: create a small piece of paper for the kids to write their list on.
make sure to put the name and age of the child.
STEP 2: have the kids sit down and write down their top 5 list.
STEP 3: while the kids are doing that you can start writing on the ornament with the glue.  I wrote the year.

STEP 4: Add some Glitter to the year you just wrote with glue.

STEP 5: Let the glitter / glue dry and add the lists the children just created to the ornaments.

UGLee Pen Review


I recently received a 3 pack of Uglee Pens to review.
I used them while I was writing out our Christmas cards.  The grip was nice, but the tip of the pen is not tight and has room to move around making for some sloppy hand writing. :(
Over all I was not impressed.  So I dont really have much to say.
The UGLee Pen is a revolutionary ergonomic pen that is designed, created and used by a real physician. This Doctor-inspired grip pen is redefining the way people view pens and writing.
The UGLee Pen is good for everyone who writes (even just a grocery list), and is especially helpful to people who experience pain and discomfort when writing, for example those with arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, etc.,. It's also the best writing utensil  for children who are learning to write and are developing fine motor skills, as well as helpful for special-needs children who find holding a pen or pencil properly difficult. And for high-school and college students who have to take copious notes, this pen helps keep hands and fingers from cramping.

Super Fun Santa Beard Advent / Countdown Calendar for Christmas


Every year we make a Santa Advent Calender Craft. and we use the Santa beard to count down the days until Santa is on his way.

Here are our Santa countdowns from last year.
all four of ours.
Emma Leigh 6

Sky Leigh 4

Joshua 2

Its simply 2 printable sheets, cut, paste, color, and glue one cottonball on a day!
SUPER FUN WAY TO COUNTDOWN SANTA'S ARRIVAL!
I use the same site every year. First-School Preschool Activities and Crafts
I use the black and white templates because they enjoy coloring the parts themselves
I use THIS TEMPLATE for the beard *which has numbers printed on it, hat bream, mustache ect.
I use THIS TEMPLATE for the face, eyes, nose, mouth and hat.

we then:
  1. Color them in before you cut them makes it easier,
  2. Cut them out
  3. Tape/glue 2 pieces of construction paper together,
  4. then start creating your santa starting with the face. (leaving room at the top for his hat)
  5. Glue all the pieces until you have a finished, colored, santa
  6. add 1 cotton ball a day starting on 25, counting down to number 1 which will be christmas eve. 
We love this printable over others, because it is 2 pages, you have to cut, and glue all the pieces of santa together. The kids LOVE doing this every year.  Rather then printing 1 sheet and doing nothing else but gluing cotton balls which can be found here.
