Day 3: Ornaments
Today's Christmas activity was making ornaments to hang in Sydney's room. She really loved doing these. In fact she spent a little over 2 hours working away on them. I was inspired from this post and just simplified it for a three year old. We used silver pipe cleaners and as you can see Sydney picked all pink beads. They actually look really cute and festive all hanging in the corner of her room.
1. To make just use 3 pipe cleaners and twist at the centers. Then arrange to resemble a snowflake or star.
2. Then have your child place beads on the pipe cleaners in whatever order or color they want. The beads stay on the pipe cleaners by themselves.
3. Then hang from string.
Note: You could also use a nice ribbon instead of string and use them on the Christmas tree or have your kids hand them out as gifts.
