As promised, here are some fun ideas for Christmas - all taken from the December 2007 / January 2008 FAMILY FUN Magazine:
(#1) Terra-Cotta Nativity
Here are the abbreviated directions:
Paint 2 small terra-cotta pots and a small saucer. Use wooden knobs as the heads, drawing the faces on with a fine-point marker. Glue the heads to the pots/cloth.
(#2) Pieces on Earth
This is from the same page in the December 2007/January 2008 FAMILY FUN as the Terra-Cotta Nativity. Use some old puzzle pieces to paint as elves, gingerbread men, or reindeer and glue the accessories on. How cute!
(#3) Pop Down to Christmas
