It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful and that your Christmas is off to a great start!

Btw, that Santa in the 4th photo is a handprint (upside down)… super cute craft and fun to make with a group of friends.

Some friends and I got together last year and made them by painting the thumb and base of our little ones’ hands red, the palm peach and the fingers white then pressing their hands on construction paper.

The children stamped a little white dot at the end of the hat, dotted black paint eyes and painted a little mouth (some had help from their moms).

After they dried we glued a little picture of the artist on back (with the year), laminated them for 25 cents a foot at a local teacher store, strung a little ribbon through a hole punched in the top and gave them as grandparent and aunt gifts.

Just thought I’d share the idea. ♥

Btw, I just added instructions on how to make the Santa hand-print ornament, thought I’d let you know for your little one. :)

Great photos of your sons, Michelle! Their expressions in the third photo are priceless! I love handprint crafts – they’re always a great keepsake gift.

We make that same handprint as part of a handprint book at our preschool. It’s very cute as an ornament. We’ll have to try that!

Looks like the family is having a blast! What great pictures!
