Making Christmas ornaments with the grandkids, and making them out of a wooden block from the craft store. And if your grandkids aren't around to do this, just add it to your own craft list. It's very fun.
I saw this idea on Pinterest. I simply got what I thought would be the needed supplies, including a package of wooden craft blocks from the hobby store, and let my grands do the rest. They are teenagers now, so I could turn them loose. They are so creative!
You'll need the aforementioned wooden cubes, pretty Christmas-themed papers, an assortment of ribbons and embellishments, hot glue gun and Mod Podge.
Here we go!
Calling all grandparents! If your grandkids aren't in town, or they're in town, but much too busy for this project, I suggest doing it yourself. It can fill up your cozy December evenings, and you can turn it into a keepsake ornament for your own tree or to gift to them for Christmas. Especially if you use their photos. I'll include a website for this at the end of this blog.
You can have a tea with your grandkids, and then make the ornaments. Just another fun get-together for you and your grandkids. We did that last year. I got the treats, but the girls made the canapés and set the table for us. Then we simply cleared the table and got busy creating. It's just another fun time that one hopes all involved will always remember!
And that's it! This is a blog for and about grandparents and grandchildren. And today's blog can work for grandparents only. If you're not able to do this with your grandchildren, it's a fun project just for YOU. Or invite some friends over and create a keepsake ornament. It's all good!
