This week, we’ve been working on a Christmas Village. With so much of our stuff in storage, I often find myself saying, “Oh, we’ll just do that next year, I guess.” But decorating for Christmas?! Come on! So we decided to make the best of what we had!! The folks over at Supermom Moments had a nifty little Christmas Village and we decided to copy them (we don’t spend a whole lot of time reinventing the wheel around here!). We decided to make ours a little busier than theirs by using patterned paper, but other than that, the idea was all theirs.
Homeschooling mamas learn quickly that you never throw away cereal boxes, tin cans, or milk jugs. And no, they don’t pile up because we need them for some project every time you turn around! And this was certainly one of those projects.
We wrapped up all our cereal, rice, cracker and whatever else boxes, and added in some candy canes, popsicle sticks, and a few other things we had around the house.
This is a project where there is no specific desired outcome, so the kids could just be creative and do whatever they wanted with what they had. I think they did pretty well. And mom and dad had fun, too! The window printables and cute candy cane bunting come from Supermom Moments, as well.
