Kids Crafty Christmas Tree

Have I mentioned lately how much my kids love scissors, glue, play-doh and construction paper?!?! 
We try to squeeze in one crafty project a week. Last week it was a homemade Christmas tree. Oh how do I love the dollar tree :) we get all of our crafty supplies there. Lot's of glitter, poster board, foam, colored popcycle sticks and puff ball thingymagigers.

Such an in the moment, Adorable Picture!
Santa Preston... in deep thought contemplating his next play-doh project.

As simple as cutting, coloring, drawing and gluing can bring so much joy. It's the basic things, the simple things... it's the small things!

I've found that glue on a paper plate, applied with a Q-tip is much easier and less messy.

And yes, we do just about everything in our jammies in the morning before school.

Holiday's are such a great time to incorporate kids crafts and turn it into a teaching lesson about these special days that we celebrate every year.

What a sweet post and what BEAUTIFUL kids :) They seem to get bigger every time I'm over here. I love your photos and craft--definitely looks up our alley, and I will keep that Q-Tip tip in mind for next time we need glue! This made me smile :)

Thanks for sharing it with us at Rub Some Dirt On It!
