Twelve Days of Christmas

I hope y’all had a wonderful Christmas!  The kids and I had so much fun doing all our Christmas activities!  Here are some of the highlights:

We made these cute no-sew ornaments by wrapping a styrofoam ball with a strip of Christmas fabric & pinning the ribbon and the top of the ribbon with a stick pin.

I found a really cute post on Pinterest about making ornaments out of old spoons.  Since I didn’t have any old spoons, I bought some cheap new spoons at Handy Andy & some metallic acrylic paint and we made these:

On the first day of winter, we made these cute giant snowflakes out of popsicle sticks (another Pinterest idea!):

We also made these cute snowmen out of white bottle caps that I bought at Hobby Lobby.  I hot glued the caps on a piece of ribbon and the kids decorated with markers.

 

Another fun project we did with our friends at writing class.  The kids each decorated one cookie, and then I had them write down instructions for making their cookie.  They swapped instructions and each of them tried to make the same cookie as their partner.  It was fun, and I was impressed with how close some of them were!

(They were already eating by the time I thought that I should take photos!)

Now we’re on to the Twelve Days of Christmas!  We started this tradition last year.  Starting the day after Christmas, the kids have a RACK (Random Act of Christmas Kindness) each day for the 12 Days of Christmas.  For each act of kindness, they also get to do a fun activity or get a small gift.

Some of the activities we’ve done so far:

Gone to the library and left a little box of dimes for folks with fines due.

Had lunch at Wendy’s and gave away a free Frosty coupon.

Went to see the Hobbit and bought two tickets for the folks in line behind us.  (They declined, so we left the money and our RACK coupon with the cashier.  Hopefully someone was blessed that day!)

The kids have so much fun taking turns to see what their mission is for each day.
