We started Christmas craft week this week!
I've made it a point to not run all over town so when Walmart was out of the things we needed I had to improvise. No styrofoam cones? Make them out of cardboard. (I had to refer to my friend Cyndy on how to make one!) No felt (whatsoever)? Use a $5.99 green XL sweatshirt. I bought the little presents at the dollar store and had all of the other trimmings on hand.
I would love to say that as much as I love the one on the right, it wasn't going to happen with moody kids that day. I should have had the strips already made. Lesson learned. So we opted for little squares hot glued on in a criss cross fashion. All Roo wanted to do was the decorating anyway. Mommy could do the hard part.
Not much went on yesterday since I had a small surgery on my gums. It was more intense than expected. I'm better now and hopefully will find some styrofoam balls for a craft that Roo has made up herself. Wish me luck because I have no idea how to substitute for those!
