I didn’t say 5 days in a row right? ;-) It has been a busy, busy couple of days and I just didn’t have time to sit down and blog. I am actually home sick from church today :( (I hate missing church.) so I have some time and a quiet house to finally blog.
Day 5’s project was another one I did with the kids. Here is the original pin…
And here are our versions…
Definitely not as pretty as the original pin…but we had fun. ha ha :) Just like the gingerbread houses we have made in the past, we struggled with keeping the structure together. Even with a 10, 8, and 6 year old (Luke was napping), I still had to help them quite a bit. But once we got the structure together, the kids had a good time making all the little figures. We had a great time putting them together but I think they had the most fun when I said they could eat them…
Here are the supplies that we used:
- graham crackers
- coconut for hay (Put coconut in a ziploc with a few drops of yellow food coloring and shake!)
- large marshmallows
- black licorice
- fruit roll ups
- circus peanuts for baby Jesus
Making this craft was the “treat” they opened in their Advent calendar yesterday and they were all really excited about it. I love to do crafts and I am so thankful that my kids do too. I know it won’t last forever…but I am going to enjoy every minute of it while they do.
I’ll be back tomorrow with some fun little ornaments.
Have a great Sunday…
