All these moms are on Pinterest making their own soap and reindeer-shaped treats, and I’m like “I took a shower and kept the kids alive.” – someecards.
I have to preface this article with this quote I saw on Facebook so that you understand I am definitely not a crafty mom!! In saying that you will immediately know anyone can do this kid-friendly Christmas craft. A friend of mine is a local blogger and her blog is a Mommy Resource site. She is always posting fun crafts, recipes, educational activities etc…Recently she posted a bead ornament activity and it looked amazing! I quickly read the article, saw her explanation of how to do it and realized it was a great kid-friendly/mommy-friendly activity. And as a bonus it would be very cheap to do because we already had most of the materials we needed.
My son was so excited when I told him what we were going to do – remember, I’m the not-so-crafty mommy so my kids don’t get a lot of this kind of fun! I had him go to the store with me to get the few things we needed. Then, after our return home, we had a great time making ornaments while little sister took her afternoon nap. The instructions are included in the link below.
Ours turned out great and we are going to hang them on our tree and give them away when family members come over for Christmas!!
