Paper Crafts: Construction Paper Christmas

My favorite time of year is finally here!!!  The first thing I do, after I get all gitty, is grab the construction paper, scissors, and glue…

The first thing I had the girls do was the traditional chain link.  My preschooler was put on glue duty.  We cut strips and put them into a pattern.  She learned to grab the proper strip (in accordance with the pattern) and glue them.  This gluing duty also helped her to know how much glue to use; she use to put a gallon on the paper.  My 7 year old would grab the glued strip and make the chain.

Next up we made a Christmas tree for our front window.  I put my preschooler on cutting out ornaments.  I thought this would help her to learn how to use the scissors.  Look at her, she id really focused:

This little one helped out too.  She got to color on the scraps.

We wanted to make a bigger tree, so I taped 3 pieces of paper together and here is my 7 year old cutting away.  After the tree she helped her sister glue on the ornaments and cut out a star…

Here is our finished product.  The girls thought it would be nice to make presents to put under the tree.

We have a lot more to do; Holly, candles, snow flakes, snow family, etc…  I’ll try and post pics as the get done.

    a cute little idea i used to do for my children was i had 6 empty toilet paper rolls, (3 kids :) ) and 3 empty spools from my thread. I made binoculars for them and sent them on a treasure hunt in the backyard for their favorite toys. We mothers all know how much kids love to pretend with their own binoculars like Daddy’s! They would play for hours! i simply used good ol’ fashioned Elmers Glue, to glue the spool between the 2 rolls. When the glue dries, let the kids decorate them how they like, draw a pretend map for each, then send them on a special treasure hunt! Afterwards, we had a victory picnic in the backyard with their treasure! My kids are all older now, and always tell me that was one of their best times as a child. I grab ‘em of course, then kiss their foreheads. ha! This is one special memory they’ll “treasure” for times to come.
