|Star Christmas Cards|
I am always looking for some type of craft to do with my son, and this month I decided to try to get into the spirit a little more with star themed Christmas crafts.
My son loves to paint, and I love that he loves it! I covered our kitchen table with paper, gave him red, green, and white paint and let him go at it! I also bought crayola glitter glue and gave him all but the turquoise. Using his artwork, we then cut the paper in to star shapes (that eventually became our Christmas cards), and into strips to make a garland.
When we were finished with the table, I gave him cardboard stars. This was an upcycle project if you will. We have cardboard boxes at work that have dividers in them to hold rolled plans, and the person who worked in our print room cut the dividers into a bunch of smaller pieces that were about 5″ x 5″ when pushed flat, but have seams to fold into a cube.

I don’t have good picture but we also painted salt dough ornaments, my son did most of the painting, I just went back with the glitter glue and added a little. The original plan is for the ornaments to be
decoration on the grand- parents gifts, and they still may. I had a couple extra stars that I put on two of the gifts, so the third may have an ornament. Because I was a little impatient, I dried the dough in the oven on a low temperature. Well they bubbled up a bit so they didn’t turn out quite how I wanted. But everything was a lot of fun to make.
