A Christmas Gift for You

A last minute Christmas post before I sign off for the holiday, and I still haven’t wrapped the presents! Back in June when I took part in Mommy Labs’ Forest Fiesta Blog-hop, I promised to put up some scanner art trees to embellish. Unfortunately I never got round to it, so my Christmas gift is a template for a scanner art Christmas tree on a stand just waiting to be embellished. All you need is some thin card, (we used an empty cereal box) scissors and glue to get started. If nothing else, it might keep the kids occupied for a while over the holiday period!

We decorated ours using glitter glue and sequins, but of course you can use anything you want. All 3 of us joined in, and its probably not too difficult to tell who did which tree. As you can see, my 5 year old has yet to appreciate that less is occasionally more, and decorated his tree with enthusiastic exuberance. My 7 year old decorated his in his own distinctive style, while mine was a little more restrained.

So wishing everyone a very happy Christmas, I’ll see you again in the New Year.
