Advent Calendar Day 5: Make a Christmas Craft

What Christmas craft do we make that we haven’t already made?!  Dilemma!  I was not in the mood for ugly foam craft kits and the last couple of years we have made gorgeous beaded ornaments …that take for-ev-er.  So, I looked in a few stores, poked around online, and … found the perfect craft for us!


How had my kids made it half-way through their childhood without ever experiencing shrinky dinks?  FAIL!  I pulled this box out, told them how much fun it was and said, “We made these when I was little!”  The wise-cracking little one made some comment about, “oh, so you mean they’re ancient?!”  Hilarious kid.  Do you want to make a craft OR NOT!

Honestly, I was skeptical, for no good reason.  But we all sat around the table and got to coloring… and long story short… this is the best family craft ever.  We had a blast, it turned out perfectly, and the look on the kids faces as we were watching them shrink up, was priceless.

Here’s our cute little teensy tree after we finished putting it all together.  We love it!
